Disable Right Clicks on your blog posts!

PLAGIARISM is spreading like PLAGUE now a days. People just copy the contents from other's blogs without even giving the credit to original content's author in their blog posts! Some people do it deliberately,while others say they were not aware of it. So how about making people aware that Plagiarism is a Punishable Offence by alerting them with a dialog box which pops out when someone tries to Right Click and Copy your blog's content?

I too had an experience with Plagiarism and trust me,it was Frustrating! But I was successful in getting my copied contents removed from infringer's blog within 12 hours of time!

Today,I came across a script(on businessvartha.com) to "Disable Right Clicks for your Blog Posts". This script will display a warning message when someone tries to copy the contents of your blog using Right Clicks!

Follow these steps:
1>Go to Layout-> Add a gadget -> Choose 'Html/Javascript' gadget
2>Insert the code given below in the gadget you have just chosen:

<SCRIPT language=JavaScript> 
var message = "The Contents of this Blog are Copyrighted..!!! Do Not Copy!"; 
function rtclickcheck(keyp){ if (navigator.appName == "Netscape" && keyp.which == 3){ alert(message); return false; } 
if (navigator.appVersion.indexOf("MSIE") != -1 && event.button == 2) { alert(message); return false; } } 
document.onmousedown = rtclickcheck; 
</SCRIPT>

3>Save the gadget and close.

Now go to your blog, try right clicking on some content. You will get a warning dialog box alerting you not to copy the contents!

Telling people what they can copy and what they cannot, and also telling them to leave a link to your blog when they use copied material could also help, dont u think?

Cynic,
yes, u can do that if u wish to!
But do u think ppl are so honest that they ll leave you the link of copied material?
