Is it possible to disable the ability to copy photos from my hubs?
I've noticed if I right click on a photo, I can copy or save any photo shown on a hub. I'm not crazy about the idea that anyone can take any of my photos (which I took myself). Is there a way to protect them? To disable this feature?
While I'm not sure if there is a way to disable the feature that allows users to right click and download your pictures... The one thing I can tell you is that if you are worried about the idea that anyone can take any of your photos, then disabling the right click download options is not going to help. Users can still use screen capture software to get your images if they really want to.
So the only foolproof way to really protect your pictures is to not put them out there. That said, I believe most users will not use other images unless those images have a creative common licenses.
You can do that from ANY hub and ANY website. The only way to avoid that is to stamp your name over top of the photo, or implement it as part of a flash website (but still, can screen capture). Check out professional photographers: http://www.stephenanthonyphotography.com/
They stamp their name over all of their photos.

I've gone to many sites where the second you try to highlight text and then right click you get a little error pop up that says, "Sorry this function is disabled"... why do they do that? To keep people from copying their text (or other content) and pasting it somewhere else as their...

I am not sure how you do it, but I remember reading somewhere that you can disable right click on your articles to stop them being plagiarised by copy and paste, do you think its a good idea? Or do you believe that 'they' are stealing them in a different way? another thing, maybe if when we publish...

I have been thinking about a way to keep our work from being stolen from off of Hubpages, but I am not sure if this is possible or not.In the last month or 2 I have had a person copy my work on to another website. The person did not ask for permission, and they did not even give me credit for my...
