Can you be more specific in your AOL example?
Honestly, defeating copy thieves is really tough. Anytime they can view your source than can copy. They can highlight, copy, and past. They can save your web pages to their hard drives etc.
The most effective offense against this is having a cease and desist template ready and firing it off to the web owner and their ISP when you find examples of your text being taken.

thanks for your reply. Basically, I just want a website where by its difficult for people to copy and paste. in order words to disable the left and right click and only click where it is necessary for one to click. robert adams msg:972721 7:34 pm on Jan 14, 2004 (gmt 0)
It can't really be done. People can still go to their menu bar at the top of the screen and copy and or just save the whole page to their hard drive.
Post the appropriate copyright notices and go on with your life.
