I've recently put up a anti-leech code for my site but for some reason, the code is also preventing my visitors from right clicking and saving files. Is there anyway I can modify the code to allow right clicking and still have it function as an anti-leech script from other server?

This is the code I'm using.
RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER}!^$ [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER}!^http://website.com/ [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER}!^http://www.website.com/ [NC]
RewriteRule [^/]+.(jpeg¦jpg)$ - [F]

I use:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER}!^$
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER}!^http://domain.com/.*$ [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER}!^http://www.domain.com/.*$ [NC]
RewriteRule .*\.(gif¦jpg)$ - [F]

users can still right click and download with out a problem

This is a little faster, covers more image file types and the periods in the URL are escaped properly:

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER}!^$
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER}!^http://(www\.)?mydomain\.com [NC]
RewriteRule .*\.(gif¦jpg¦jpeg?¦png)$ - [F]

Note: Replace all broken vertical pipe symbols "¦" with the one from your keyboard before use!
