You may or may not have noticed that you may not be able to right-click-and-save or select-and-save material from Phosphor Dot Fossils. We’ve installed software to, at the very least, deter theft of the material we’ve written and gathered here. We’d rather you simply linked to the relevant pages/categories of our site than try to take our material.
For print or other media: we are open to discussion of reprint rights and licensing arrangements of our material, but its availability on this site does not constitute permission for you to just take it. Use the contact form below to get in touch with us and let us know which material you wish to use; we’ll get back with you in a timely manner to discuss fees and author credits.
Earl and Rob are also available for interviews about the history of classic arcade, computer and home video games. Rob has written an especially insightful book, “Commodork“, covering the experience of growing up in the age of the pre-internet computer bulletin board system culture. Earl can also provide broadcast-quality video of virtually any game that’s been covered here, and has done so for such clients as the History Channel.
Please contact us and let us know your needs. We’ve made this site to celebrate the classic games and share our enthusiasm for them; we can also help to share that enthusiasm and our considerable knowledge on the topic with your readers, viewers and other audiences.
