I have a site to sort out (not mine) and as I'm going along sorting out the content, I got to wondering about that thing that you do that prevents copy and paste maneuvers.
I don't actually know what that thing is, I just know that it exists. Is it something that you insert into the code, a widget? Any advice gratefully received
You can disable right clicking, which will also make downloading images from your site harder (but not impossible). However, this will also make it harder to open a page in a new tab or window, so you will risk annoying your users.
Yep thanks dingdon - just realised that, plus the fact that those that rip content only have to check the page source anyway.
Never mind - wishful thinking
Yes, it wont stop an automated scraper that just checks the page source, but it will deter the naive user who thinks its ok to paste an entire article in a forum post or onto their personal blog.
What code do you use that adds a line at the bottom when it is copied such as "to read more visit this URL" and gives the address of the whole article and who wrote it?
thats a cool one isnt it!

Sunforged, is that a new pic you are using for the avatar? Love it.
Thanks! Thats my little handful.
Yes any of the javscripts would work in wordpress.
Some themes have a header/footer script section that you may have used for analytics
You can find plugins that are made to just stick stuff in the header.
All you need to do is put the code into your header.php file in WP via FTP, if this is out of your comfort zone this MIGHT help
but the codex can be overly technical sometimes.
Here is a plugin that claims to solve this issue perfectly:

If you use tynt.com script on wordpress then when someone copies snippet from your article, following information will be added.
< C/P Stuff from the source >

I've tried this twice before, once through Yahoo (mistake) and once through VistaPrint (another mistake and they now have my name hostage). I once had a great site that a webmaster maintained for me and that was a good one (didn't make any money on it but hey)So I'm ready to try this again. I have...

An editor reviewed this particular hub and decided that due to the fact that it has been extensively covered they could not get it on Toughnickel. To my surprise I found it doing well on the main site - HubPages.

The site is w w w. car article. net/Found one (so far) of mine. Have already filed DMCA. I suspect the whole site is nothing but stolen car articles. And they've got AdSense ads.

Have you heard of a site called http://encyclopedial.com/? I found one of my articles there today.I began copying the titles to other articles and pasting them into our HP search box. Every article I checked was from HubPages. Here is the URL for the site....

There is so much of this going on that it may not be worthwhile to mention. Since I know that this site is not cooperative, I sent my DMCA complaint to Google. My hub is copied word for word with all the lovely photographs and even a link to another similar hub. It probably is my best hub with lots...
