Recipeasly promised to ‘fix’ online recipes. After critics called it theft, the site shut down.
🔗️ @timcarman’s very thought provoking article about innovation, copyright, and cultural stories of underrepresented groups. https://www.washingtonpost.com/food/2021/03/02/recipeasly-food-bloggers-controversy/
The stories are personal. They’re cultural. They’re often told from the perspective of women, immigrants and people of color who have created and invested in a platform to share their stories. The recipe aggregator sites, bloggers note, basically tell the creators that their stories have no value. It’s the same message America has told immigrants and women for centuries, now just in electronic form.
