Prevent IE users from copying or seeing copy toolbar?

me
How do I prevent the save/print/email/mypictures toolbar from popping up
when IE users place their cursor over photos at my website? Thank you in
advance for your help.

In which countries is the intention to infringe copyright a
criminal act?

The act of copying is a violation in the US as evidenced by the
recent spate of lawsuits by the record industry against people who
download music files.


That would make copyright violation a civil matter then, not criminal.
In any case, the act of saving an image out of a browser is unlikely to
constitute a copyright violation in & of itself.

That depends, most (all?) movies warn viewers that it is criminal offense to
reproduce their copyright protected property.

Possibly not under those specific circumstances but only if the owner of the
IP never finds out.

I think the true point here is that it is unethical to 'steal' other
peoples stuff, whether it is criminal or not, and that taking measures
to make it a little tougher on people is not a bad thing.

I am more then willing to share, but drop me an email and ask, don't
just take stuff that I worked my ass off to produce. That is the point.
