Hey guys, so I'm out driving for Lyft and Uber tonight, and I picked up a guy who's the contractor building contractor and he said that he's run across some people copying pictures of homes he's built and using them without his permission. He was asking if there is way to stop people from right-clicking and copying pictures and I told him I know there is I just don't know what it is. So help me out guys here what's the command or what's the code for stopping someone from copying your pictures off your website?

The best thing to do is probably to register copyright on the images, and start sending DMCA takedown notices to both the site owners and the ISPs. Dan

=============================================================== From: John Dills ------------------------------------------------------ I’ll second the DMCA thing. It’s not hard to open up console and snag them anyway. Sent from my iPhone

=============================================================== From: John Aldrich ------------------------------------------------------ Ok. Thanks, Dan. I know some places (flicker?) Have a way to blick right-click, but I wasnt sure how. If the guy reaches out to me I'll pass along the suggestion. He's got my contact info, but I don't have his -------------------------------------------- Subject: Re: [Chugalug] Website question To: chugalug@chugalug.org Date: Wednesday, April 4, 2018, 6:48 PM On Wed, 04 Apr 2018 18:40:13 -0400 John Aldrich wrote: > using them without his permission.

It's a waste of time. It's really annoying and it doesn't actually prevent anyone from grabbing your content.

=============================================================== From: Dean Warren ------------------------------------------------------ Hey I have a gross of IBM Mouse Balls available for sale if anyone needs a new one. MEMO Re: Replacement of Mouse Balls. If a mouse fails to operate or should it perform erratically, it may need a ball replacement. Mouse balls are now available as FRU (Field Replacement Units). Because of the delicate nature of this procedure, replacement of mouse balls should only be attempted by properly trained personnel. Before proceeding, determine the type of mouse balls by examining the underside of the mouse. Domestic balls will be larger and harder than foreign balls. Ball removal procedures differ depending upon the manufacturer of the mouse. Foreign balls can be replaced using the pop off method. Domestic balls are replaced by using the twist off method. Mouse balls are not usually static sensitive. However, excessive handling can result in sudden discharge. Upon completion of ball replacement, the mouse may be used immediately. It is recommended that each person have a pair of spare balls for maintaining optimum customer satisfaction. Any customer missing his balls should contact the local personnel in charge of removing and replacing these necessary items. Please keep in mind that a customer without properly working balls is an unhappy customer. Hope you have a great day, Dean Warren On Thu, Apr 12, 2018 at 1:19 PM, Michael Scholten wrote:
