[thelist] Preventing right-clicking on a page?

The link I sent earlier includes some pages with examples of "working"
scripts. However I would still say that the way to prevent them from using
your work without authorisation is to use traditional business processes -
tell them quite simply that the work remains your property until such a time
as they have paid for its use. There is a legal system built up around
protecting your rights to show your client work without them appropriating

If the client are *that* slimy that they would consider stealing your work,
then you might want to question whether it is worth working for them at all

Good luck with it!
