Disbale copy/paste feature

553 512MB
Some websites disable the Windows copy and paste feature to use on thier website. A text can not be copied and pasted either from using shortcuts : CTRL+C, CTRL+V or from using copy, paste option from the menu.

These website disable copy/paste probably for some safety reasons.

What gets changed in the Windows that disables copy/paste feature. Is there anything in Registry that gets changed or anything else or a website uses any ActiveX sort of thing to so it?

If it is done through Windows settings, could these be manually changed when the website disbales copy/paste feature ?

Normally someone disables right click on their website because they don't want people appropriating their material. It wouldn't be considered good netiquette to then bypass that lock and start copying material.

Nothing gets changed on your computer. It's just a piece of Java script running that disables your right click menu while you are on that page.

I have no intention of doing something illegal .

For just learning more, i am interested in find out the way to bypass such restriction.

I have used javascript. If a website uses javascript to disable copy/paste then probably there isn't any way to by pass it but if there is something done to registery, etc then it is possible.

if someone knows a workaround to bypass javascript restriction, please share it , thanks.

There are ways around it or programs that will allow you to copy the material, but as was said above it is bad etiquette, not illegal, just rude and inconsiderate. I do find web sites that disable that option annoying and I don't return, but it is their right to block such actions on their webpage.
