Copyright and Trademarks

This site contains copyrighted material, trademarks and other proprietary information including, text, software, photos, video, graphics, music and sound. All content included on this site, such as text, software, photos, video, graphics, music, sound, and logos, is protected by copyrights, trademarks, and other rights, which are owned and/or controlled by GQ Partners, LLC or by other parties. GQ Partners LLC owns a copyright in the selection, coordination arrangement and enhancement of such content, as well as the content original to it. Each third-party content provider owns the copyright in content original to it. You may use material from this site only for your own personal, non-commercial use. This site or any portion of this site may not be modified, published, reproduced, duplicated, copied, uploaded, downloaded, posted, transmitted, sold, or otherwise exploited for any commercial purpose that is not expressly permitted by GQ Partners, LLC or expressly permitted under copyright law. In the event of any permitted copying, redistribution, or publication of copyrighted material, no changes in or deletion of author attribution, trademark legend or copyright notice shall be made. You acknowledge that you do not acquire any ownership rights by downloading copyrighted material.

Just as this site requires users to respect our copyrights and those of our affiliates and partners, we respect the copyrights of others. If you believe in good faith that your copyrighted work has been reproduced on this site without authorization in a way that constitutes copyright infringement, you may notify our designated copyright agent by e-mail at publisher@gqpartnersllc.com

Fair Use

GQ Partners, LLC has always taken copyright issues very seriously, both as a creator of content and as a user of other people’s content. In fact, everything that appears in a typical edition of the newspaper is copyright protected.

 

Nonetheless, our work is illegally reproduced everyday on websites across the country. The federal Copyright Act protects our right and our readers’ rights to make fair use of copyrighted content. We have no issue with people who quote a small amount of a Post story so as to comment on it, perhaps even criticize us. That’s the essence of free speech in a vigorous democracy.

But fair use of our content restricts those who want to reference it to reproduce no more than a headline and up to a couple of paragraphs or a summary of the story. (We also request users provide a link to the entire work on our website). The fair use rule generally does not entitle users to display the whole story or photograph on their website. To do so is a violation of our copyright and we will use all legal remedies available to address these infringements.

We understand people may want to share what they find interesting in our publication. This is a reminder that there is a right way to do it.

Finally, thank you for your continued support. We intend to remain a vital and trusted source for unique and unduplicated reporting on the concerns and issues affecting you and this community.

GQ Partners, LLC is not responsible for the content, advertising, products or other materials made available on or through any Linked Site. The links to these sites are for your convenience only, and you access them at your own risk. GQ Partners, LLC shall not be held responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any loss or damage caused or alleged to have been caused to a user in connection with such Linked Sites.

GQ Partners, LLC welcomes links to this site. You may establish a link to this site, provided that the link does not state or imply any sponsorship or endorsement of your site by GQ Partners, LLC, DenverPost.com, or any group or individual affiliated with GQ Partners, LLC. You may not use on your site any logos, trademarks, service marks, or copyrighted materials appearing on this site, including but not limited to any logos or characters, without the express written consent of the owner of the mark or right. You may not frame or otherwise incorporate into another site the content or other materials on this site without prior written consent.
Interactive Areas

This site’s forums, bulletin boards and chat rooms are provided to give users interesting and stimulating forums in which they can express their opinions and share their ideas. By posting opinions, comments, or ideas on this site, you grant GQ Partners, LLC a non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, and fully sublicensable right to use, copy, reproduce, modify, display, adapt, publish, translate, create derivative works from, distribute, and display such reviews and comments throughout the world in any form, media, software or technology of any kind. You also grant GQ Partners, LLC the right to use your name in connection with the reproduction or distribution of such material.

Submission

This site considers any content that you submit to the Post through its websites to be available and authorized for publication by the Post or its affiliates. You should understand that by submitting content to this site, you are indicating both that you: (a) own the rights in the content, or that you otherwise have the right to authorize this site to use the content; and (b) believe any information you have submitted is accurate and current. As a result, when you submit content to this site, you should be sure that you actually have the right to authorize this site to use the content. For example, just because you have a copy of a photograph, such as a yearbook picture, even when the photograph is a picture of you, your possession of that copy does not necessarily mean that you own the copyright in that photograph.

Assuming that you do actually own the rights in the content that you submit to this site, you can rest assured that you are not giving up your ownership of the rights, including the copyright, in that content when you submit the content to this site. But, you are giving this site and its affiliates a royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, worldwide, non-exclusive license to use, reproduce, copy, modify, create derivative works of, distribute, display, perform, archive and store, the content that you have submitted, for any purpose, in any form, media, or technology of any kind now existing or developed in the future for the full term of any rights that may exist in the content.

The bottom line is that under this license, you have no further right to control how this site or its affiliates use the content you have provided, regardless of how this site chooses to use that content, in whatever form, in whatever medium, for whatever purpose, forever.

And, you have agreed to give this license to this site for no compensation other than our agreement to provide attribution to you for the content.

If you do not wish to convey this license to this site, then you should not submit the content to this site.
