How to Keep Article Thieves from Stealing Your Work

If you’ve written for the web for very long, you’ve probably had your articles stolen and posted on another site. Often, the article thief will claim that he wrote your brilliant article. Well, here’s one way to thwart the lazier thieves: the No Copy Code.
It keeps people from being able to copy and paste your articles or blogs.
Simply copy and paste this code into your site’s HTML and you’re golden.
Note: I use this code and it works great.

<script language=”JavaScript1.2″>
//Disable select-text script (IE4+, NS6+)- By Andy Scott
//Exclusive permission granted to Dynamic Drive to feature script
//Visit http://www.dynamicdrive.com
for this script
function disableselect(e){
return false
}
function reEnable(){
return true
}
//if IE4+
document.onselectstart=new Function (“return false”)
//if NS6
if (window.sidebar){
document.onmousedown=disableselect
document.onclick=reEnable
}
</script>
<script language=JavaScript> <!– //Disable right

function clickIE4(){ if (event.button==2){ alert(message); return false; } }
function clickNS4(e){ if
(document.layers||document.getElementById&&!document.all){ if
(e.which==2||e.which==3){ alert(message); return false; } } } if
(document.layers){ document.captureEvents(Event.MOUSEDOWN);
document.onmousedown=clickNS4; } else if
(document.all&&!document.getElementById){
document.onmousedown=clickIE4; } document.oncontextmenu=new Function(“alert(message);return
false”) // –> </script>

function disableselect(e){
return false
}

function reEnable(){
return true
}

//if IE4+
document.onselectstart=new Function (“return false”)

//if NS6
if (window.sidebar){
document.onmousedown=disableselect
document.onclick=reEnable
}

Don't be shy! Tell me what you think!
