Isarian writes with a story, as reported on Gawker and many other places, that Cooks Source Magazine is being raked over the coals today as word spreads about its theft of a recipe from Monica Gaudio, a recipe author who discovered her recipe has been published without her knowledge. When confronting the publisher of the offending magazine, she was told ‘But honestly Monica, the web is considered “public domain” and you should be happy we just didn’t “lift” your whole article and put someone else’s name on it!.’ In addition to the story passing around online, Cooks Source Magazine’s Facebook page is being overwhelmed with posts by users glad to explain copyright law to the wayward publisher.”
