How do you guys protect your content?
Disabling Right Click does nothing but annoy your legitimate visitors and make you look foolishly paranoid about something that can never be stopped.
Actually you can prevent the theft of your images by not uploading them...
You havent really answered my question, just told me I look foolish, thanks.
On the other hand, someone who truly wants to steal your content will do so regardless so if you are only annoying your friends and fans you will look foolish...
Why do you have a hateful attitute toward someone who just wants to collect your pictures on their hard drive? They are the one's who will promote your site and send people to it. Unless you annoy them with a disabled right click...
You should sue them, the scoundrels! That'll teach 'em!
if you find your image elsewhere on the web, then you can prove it's authenticity with the digital copyright notice.
however, this still does not prevent a screen capture.
However there are enough other scubags out there that just want to lift it to put on their sites.
There may be the occasional nut that requires actual legal action but the time to worry about him is when he appears. Because if he's that stubborn a nut, a disabled right click wouldn't have stopped him.

While many plagiarisers do indeed claim that they scraped and re-posted or otherwise re-used the content of others as a "compliment" or as "free advertising", I'm afraid that this is neither logical nor in accordance with current legal theory. If you want to "compliment" a site, say nice things about. If you want to "advertise" a site, post a link to it.
See? No scraping or plagiarism required!

Something else that's useful: The scrapers, usually being morons, very frequently don't bother renaming the images they've taken. If you use a somewhat unique naming system (something like "frog_3q4.jpg" instead of just "frog.jpg"), then you may be able to find copies through Google Images and similar services. Of course, that leaves you with the hassle of having to hunt down all of your images, which is a major pain in the a$$. So try watermarking and such to try to prevent the scraping in the first place.
For text, you might want to try using the Copyscape service. Since starting with Copyscape, our incidence of plagiarism (that we've been able to detect, anyway) has gone from about one a week to about one a quarter. It's been wonderful!
My best wishes to you.
