I've heard of this. The only thing it's good for is encrypting the html but the problem is that you can still capture the images with any screen capture tool which is the original topic of the thread. The the disable of print screen button is only for IE 5 users.
If your only desire is encryption then this is great. I personally hate this program because many spammers use this to encrypt and send html mail this way so bypass spam blocking software.
Well, in that case you need to locate the essence of
the sceen capture function in the op. system and attack
it with activeX. I don't know what I hate more, the war
or to deal with activeX. That's why I decided to let them
have it without making it difficult for them. Why get
stressed dealing with suckers? Do they pay me?
But ok, interesting anyway. Just to find out what's possible.
I have put some images on someones website for them which they wanted to be protected from copying, so i installed a right click disabling script but i have discovered can be got around by highlighting the image then Copy in the edit menu, so is there a script to disable highlighting as well?
Here is the no highlight code:
Goes in the <head> section
//form tags to omit in NS6+:
var omitformtags=["input", "textarea", "select"]
if (omitformtags.indexOf(e.target.tagName.toLowerCase ())==-1)
if (typeof document.onselectstart!="undefined")
document.onselectstart=new Function ("return false")
Unfortunely there is really nothing you can do about protecting images a that are viewed on the screen but a watermark of some sort that makes it hard even in Photoshop to get rid of.
Unfortunately, decent browsers do not prevent right-click and often will not prevent selecting of text.
Anyone that wants to copy content will. The only way to 'protect' your content, if it is an image, is to watermark it. The only way to protect text content is to either not put it on the web, or check for copies regularly and actively and aggresively protect your copyright.
LittleFella: That will include graphics, jscripts, html code and in some instances php code.
I think you might have misunderstood something along the way with PHP or the tool you speak of. PHP is a server-side scripting language. It is processed, and the results are sent to the browser. The code isn't.
I had a look at what I once collected on my HD about this theme.
looks like I had filtered it down to a software called "html guardian"
as one part of the team to do this. This software does a few basic js
protections, slices images and encrypts html and js.
The other component is a js that does all this:
-Disable right click and context menu
-Protect your valuable content, source code, links, and images
-Disable drag & drop
-Disable text selecting and copy & paste
-Disable offline viewing of your webpage
-Hides the URLs of your links
-Disable printing of your webpage
-Keeping your page out of frames
-Disable taking screenshots of your webpages
that script above is from a members-only area of a site, so I cannot
directly post the code here. I'll need to check if there is copyright first.
That software does nothing. It protect from those who are either blind, or taking courses in introduction to keyboarding in a local highschool. It's worth approximatelly $0.00 plus applicable Taxes.
I went and looked at their "protected" demo page.
And what do we have here!
Anyone that disables right click and through it my mouse gestures deserves to be shot. Seriously. There is no 100% proof way to protect images. Period. If it is a client that is asking for it, tell them it cannot be done successfuly. If they want someone else to do it, great. Tell them to go ahead. Then you can show your client how the $200 they've spent on protecting the content can be bypassed by you in less than 10 seconds. That'll get them listening to you again.
If it is your site, don't do it. Just don't. It's dumb, doesn't work, and is a waste of resources. Think about it this way: software companies spend millions on copy protection, and their products are hacked before they even hit the market. What do you think you can do with HTML, JS, and ActiveX? Nothing. Nada. Niet. Nichts. Nic. w a s t e of t i m e.
