I have been on some sites, where one cannot right-click to save text or photos. Could not that technology be implemented here on HP, so our readers could still click on links and ads, but not right-click to copy content?
There are still those who would find a way around it, but it would deter the majority of people who simply wish to duplicate content elsewhere for their own benefit.
As I posted in the subject line, I am possibly simply very naive.
The people who bulk plagiarize are the very ones who know the two click way around no-right-click, whereas the fan who wants to quote one sentence and link back to you, boosting your traffic and pagerank, does not.
It was discussed just a few months ago: http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/128073
Really, it's very easy to get around not being able to right-click.
Correct me if I'm wrong. I think that plagiarism can't be stopped easily, in the internet. If we're talking about HP, they make sure, maybe, that people don't plagiarize others post in the Internet and in this community.
If it could be stopped easily it would be - so no it can't. The mass theft is done by software that "scrapes" content and no right click coding in the world will prevent that. Sadly, plagiarism will always be a problem because most people don't view it as actual theft. The same people that do it would not likely rob your house - there seems to be this kind of pervasive mindset that if it's on the internet it's "free".
Thanks, everyone, for your input! I figured it was simply to easy to block the right-clicking. I am most grateful for all of your responses.
It is simply hard for me to see how many excellent writers here have had their content copied, word-for-word, and posted elsewhere. They seem to have to jump through a lot of hoops to get it removed.

I dont mean a traumatic brain injury that causes one to lose their senses, what I am asking is...when experiences are shared (such as being in school, not home-schooled) how does a person grow up to be naive?

Why is it NAIVE, EVEN UNREALISTIC to contend that people who have been terminated/firedobtain better jobs or go on to become even more highly successful when in fact they get WORSE jobs & never fulfilling their career/success potential, even becoming abject failures? I was strongly...

First off, I reached 1/2 of my payout today, so that is very exciting! Thank you all for the advice so far, but I am in need of more. I am a little concerned, because I earned from two clicks this morning from a very low traffic hub. I thought that was really weird when I saw how much I had earned...
