Ultimately for the NG website we looked to how recipes were handled by copyright protection. The list of ingredients was not protected but the expression of how that list was derived was protected.

Sorry to Disappoint the Haters:
If you are like 3 months after an event and still haven't paid out prizes, "sorry to disappoint the haters" is probably not how I would start a sentence about maybe finally paying people. pic.twitter.com/kpM8sr5ogz

Jim Davis Drops Sponsorship:
⚠️ Announcement ⚠️
I am dropping my sponsorship with @InsightEsportCA.
I had high hopes, but am very disappointed with how they have run their events. They have been delinquent on paying their players and owe me $950 personally.
I will update this tweet if/when they pay me.
