How To Prevent Articles From Getting Copied?
Posted 10 February 2004 - 02:35 PM
I am taking Jill's advice and investing lot of time and money articles for my site that are mostly educational and explain certain topics to students. I do plan to add a "you can place it on your site with a link & referece" at the end of it.
Is it worth doing tactics like disabling right click etc to prevent others from copying them?
I am also planning to get some interactive parts made that will probably be scripts (not sure client or server) that allow students to interactative learning experience e.g. type a number and click button to see it converted to another number system. Should I take some measure to prevent copy of this since I do not want this to be posted on other sites? How should I plan this? Any ideas?

Q2: Don't have definite answer.
As far as worrying about someone copying what you do. I hate to say it, but if there's a will there's a way. I would take some commonsense precautions but not drive yourself nuts over this.

besides this, people usually use the right click disabler to discourage people from copying images. People can still highlight, copy and paste if they want to steal your articles.
There really is no way to keep people from stealing your stuff as long as it is on the Internet. You can always find out if someone has stolen something off your site by highlighting a paragraph or so and then pasting it into a search box at Google. If someone has stolen your copy word for word, then it will usually show up in the SERPs. Hope that helps and good luck with your articles.

I guess you could put an invisible layer to prevent copy and paste, you could use a html scrambler, but at the end of the day I am no technobob, but if i really wanted it, i could get it. and why compromise on SEO just to slow down something.
Text only browser, just came into my mind as I was typing, that would get around the above.
All you can do is keep checking for snippets of the page in Google, and if you find it copied, then mail em politely and enclose your rates for content rental.

What you do, however, is be vigilent about checking for sites that have copied it. Take a few hours every month and do a search for some random sentences in your article (using quotes) and you'll find any/all that stole it.
Mine are all over the place, unfortunately. Some will take them down as requested, others just bounce your email and laugh.

Looks like I'll be busy sending cease and desists myself and/or content rental bills as OWG made reference to.

then why would you NOT want people to use your articles and place them on their sites? Seems counter productive to create ways to *prevent* people from getting articles that are free reprints anyway.
Having others post your articles on their sites is the whole goal of article promotion.
If you only want "students" to use the articles (again... seems like you're missing a big opportunity for exposure) then place the articles in a password protected directory.

Protected directory? You mean a password accessed area? But still shows up on the web page and can be be copied by creating a login account right?
It's almost pointless to worry about how to prevent users from copying your work on the Internet, if they REALLY want it they'll find a way to duplicate it.
The only thing you can really do is what was suggested in the posts above and keep an eye out (searching) for your copywritten materials.
