[thelist] Preventing right-clicking on a page?

I've seen this before, mainly on Warez sites and such...But, I was
wondering if anyone could help me out in telling me where I could find
some code that prevents right-clicking on a page.  Usually, a message
pops up letting the user know that they can't right-click.

If I can't do it for the entire page, I'd like to at least do it for an
image.  Suggestions?

What, so it cannot be 'stolen'? How about if I view the source and go
directly to the image URL and get it that way? What if I look in my cache
for the image? What if I 'print screen'? What if I use any of a hundred
tools to get a screen capture or portion thereof?

Repeated by many folks many time: If you do not want something to be taken
do not post it on the web in any way, shape, or form.
