So… taking without asking.
We teach our kids it’s wrong, yet it still happens all the time on the internet. Here’s the thing though. Just because content is out there doesn’t mean you can take it and use it without proper permission, attribution and credit.
To that end, Dearest Geeks of Earth (DGOE) can and will take steps in order to prevent our content from being used in an unauthorized manner. If DGOE content is found to be stolen, and yes, our watchdogs are always on the lookout, we will initiate contact via email once, but if that doesn’t work, will file a DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) takedown notice.
Our copyright, which covers all content, graphics, photography and ideas is protected aggressively. Please read our full copyright notice below, and feel free to check out our About and Disclosures and Legalities pages for additional information on how we work.
