Is It Worth to Disable Right Click And Clipboard Operations For Website?
Protection of copyrighted materials is quite important and actual problem in the modern world. Most of authors (musicians, artists, writers and so on) make attempts to protect their creations. It is natural that authors of websites wish to protect their content as well. Their task is especially complex, because most of the Internet content is open for public access.
What can the user do with the web page, which opened in the web browser? It can review it, print it or copy its content through the clipboard to some external editor for further processing. Webmaster, who wants to protect the content of its web page, attempts to prevent the user from printing or copying. What tools are available to the author of the website to achieve that goal?
Another approach is based on using " window.setInterval " function, which evaluates an expression each time a specified number of milliseconds has elapsed. Web page can clear clipboard each 20 milliseconds, while it is opened in the web browser. So the user can not copy any content from the web page.
- annoying alert messages;
- inaccessibility of usual context menu;
- the second approach affects clipboard functionality of the system in the whole (ie it is not possible to use clipboard at all while such protected web page is opened).
There is such "protection" is absolutely worthless. It is no need to cut off usual functionality and annoy the user. The user may never back to such website.
