[thelist] Preventing right-clicking on a page?

OK, I guess I should have explained my reasoning....btw, I totally agree
with you, but this is different...

I'm putting up a mockup image of a design for a client & we don't want
them to Save it and use it internally instead of hiring us.  It's a
one-time thing that we're going to keep up for a week for them to look
at & then take it down immediately.  It's not public & I'm not worried
about source being looked at...

Yes, I do realize that they could print screen the page and do something
with it, but I'm not sure that they're smart enough to know how to do

Subject: RE: [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
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
do not post it on the web in any way, shape, or form.
