Sharing images of the food can be illegal, and if you are taking photos at a famous restaurant, you must ask the master chef for permission before you upload it to Instagram.
In 2013, a German court widened copyright law to include applied arts, meaning almost everything can be copywritten if you build it. The report even notes that any restaurant owner can put up a notice in their restaurant that photos cannot be taken without permission and it is acceptable.
Of course, such measures could lead to less innovation in the world of food, but for now it seems that the law is little known, even in Germany.
