Have you ever wondered if you borrowed or reprinted a recipe that you would be stealing? Do you publish recipes on a blog or give them to friends? Have you found a menu item at another restaurant or posted online that looked like an original you created?

The upcoming meeting this Sunday is a workshop focused on intellectual property in the food industry. We’ll learn about the basics, when to use non-compete agreements, the pros and cons of giving away your intellectual property and how to go about effectively publishing recipes in print or on the web.

Many of you emailed to say that you are excited about this topic, and it’s shaping up to be a lively discussion!

Not sure you need the workshop?

If you know all there is to know about intellectual property and how it relates to the food world, then come for the networking. The meetings are a great place to meet others interested in food – we’ve had attendees in the past who are writers, PR consultants, architects, and photographers.

It’s a potluck

The format will be a potluck – we’ll eat at the beginning while networking and then listen to a few speakers with a discussion at the end. Please bring a dish for about 6-8 people.
