Meredith filed its reply on August 31, in which it joined the issue of the copyrightability of the recipes, which was a major premise of Meredith's counterclaim.
In concluding that Meredith had demonstrated a likelihood of prevailing on that claim, the district court found that the recipes were protectable subject matter under the federal copyright laws.
