Public Domain ideas

By: Bay Area Trojan

Does someone own a patent on burritos?

Legal question:

Who has the patent on:   scrambled eggs, sausage patties, hamburgers, french  fries, hash browns, etc.

Probably no one, these are considered "public domain" and can be made and sold by anyone.

I would assume that burritos are considered "public domain" in Mexico since they are quite common there.

So how is it "stealing" to use an idea/recipe that is considered "Public Domain"?
