Copy protect right click

Recommended Posts

Is there any plugins that will copy protect pictures and text from right click copy?

i am aware there are many ways around such restrictions, but just thought CC would have a plugin for this?

I've looked but was surprised i was unable to see one.

thanks

disabling right click is pointless, as it doesn't actually protect the page at all, it just makes it take about an extra 2 seconds for somebody to get the content they want. I honestly wouldn't even bother looking into it. Instead, I would recommend looking to protect your images / artwork using watermark techniques.

watermarking is the same really with photoshop fill / content-aware it can quite easily be removed.

i understand your points but i feel at least they have to work a little harder to grab such pictures.

thanks for confirming there is no such plugin anyway guys

Sorry. You don't need a plugin. Just a little bit of basic JS.

Don't forget that there are other reasons for your visitors to use right click other than stealing images. 

e.g. Reload, Back, Translate, Share, Spell check a field

Some uses have really distinct browsing habits and turning right click off may frustrate them. Personally it frustrates the hell out of me. 

None of the big sites like Ebay, Amazon etc disable right click. 

I think in conclusion you risk upsetting users over a small minority who may use right click to take images.

removing a watermark takes a lot  more effort than working around right click. There are a variety of techniques which will make it even harder for people to try and remove. It really is the best solution, although the time/attention you put into making the watermark tough to beat depends on how much you really mind if people steal your artwork.

i found the best way to watermark images was to give the watermark depth it will always leave a line and almost still visible when removed using that method. 

i am aware there is many methods to remove right click my chrome browser has a plug in (allow copy i think it was called) simply click off to on and you can copy images.

but that does not allow text coping although i dear say that's just as easy if i looked in to it.

We occasionally have ebay sellers who link back from ebay to our web site images.

I do have a bit of fun with this by renaming the original image and then uploading our company logo to the image name that they've linked back to.

Or changing it to something entirely random, like a picture of a blob fish.

haha, nicely done. You could disable hot linking to your images? although, it may impact some other things depending on what other off site resources you have

I would agree that while your "solution" is fun you really should disable hotlinking.  As well as using your hosting bandwidth and server resources it is a very easy method to launch a DDoS attack against a site that allows it - seen it happen several times

I know someone who hotlinks everything on his site to porn, it seems to stop them.

Not sure what you mean by this unless your friend is running a porn website.  Hotlinking is when external sites have access to and use images on your hosting account.  So hotlink protection stops any site (that isnt your own domain) from having direct access to your images. As already said, swapping out an image that is being hotlinked to for something totally different might be a bit of fun but isnt a solution.

Interesting.... I enabled hotlink protection on jpg's, and then all images stopped working across the whole site.

I disabled Hotlink, and still all images were missing.

Only after I restored .htaccess, did the images start working again.

I've seen this issue before. It's probably not matching up the domain or protocol right in the auto generated code for the allowed URL.

I re-applied hotlinking and now it works.

Looking at the 2 x .htaccess files, I'm guessing some sort of corruption or conflict going on.

.htaccess not working results:

RewriteRule .*\.(jpg|jpeg|gif|png|bmp)$ � [R,NC]

RewriteRule .*\.()$ - [F,NC]

RewriteRule .*\.(jpg|jpeg|gif|png|bmp)$ - [F,NC]

RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^$
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://domain.co.uk/.*$      [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://domain.co.uk$      [NC]
RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^http://www.domain.co.uk/.*$      [NC]

RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} !^https://www.domain.co.uk$      [NC]
RewriteRule .*\.(jpg|jpeg|gif|png|bmp)$ - [F,NC]

Oh how evil, i've just gone one better.

I blocked jpegs, gif's & png's but not bmp's

I created a blobfish image and saved as a bmp, then using hotlinking, I pointed the re-write rule to the blobfish.

So now all the ebayers hot linking back to my images will see the blob fish.

Probably does little to prevent the hot linking, but gives me satisfaction.
