I've seen plenty of recipes be posted and then re-posted by other bloggers. Most of the time, it looks like credit is given and links are provided. But I guess, if someone 'owns' a recipe, they have the rights to it. How someone can 'own' a recipe, with so few ingredients, seems odd to me.
It reminds me of a local store being sued by Pro Bass Shop, I think? Or some other fishing store, because their logo was too similar to the big-box store's. The little store had three fish in it, one was a bass, and that was the only similarity I could see. How that could be a lawsuit, is beyond me.
On the other hand, if they 'own' it, and they request you remove it, I'd just remove it and move on. Or, do as they requested and try to change it up to be your own. I wonder if something as small as using light butter popcorn, or a certain color of sprinkles, would be enough to make the recipe yours?
