Despite the growth of the food industry, it is still not clear whether copyright protection can be invoked to protect food-related inventions creations against copying. While legal scholarship and case-law seem to deny copyright protection to such works, I argue that all the arguments risen in this direction are based on faulty assumptions, and that there is no reason to exclude recipes and dishes from copyrightable subject-matter.
