Actually, recipes are not IPR, at least not in Finland, according to Jukka Kemppinen, prof. of Information Law. Analogically, in Finland, housewives should be able to sell anything product they've made from a pattern of anyone's invention, undepending on whether they've paid for the pattern or not. And in Finland, we act according to the Finnish law, meaning, a person doing the deed in Finland cannot be sued according to American law, even when it comes to IPR in the internet. That's where the rush to unify laws EU- and worldwide comes from.

Except that the US does believe that it can sue for IPR infringement, even if it was legal in the source country. Check out http://www.freesklyarov.org/ for an example.
