Is there any way to keep internet users from saving webpages through thier browsers? I use the disable right click script and layer blocks, but this still doesn't keep others from going to File, save as, and saving the whole page -- including the images! Is there any way to block this???? Any help is GREATLY appreciated.

Thanks.

Yeah..in theory...write ur entire page in a java applet so they cannot copy and paste anything and even if they download the class they wont be able to run it.

In practical realistics terms no you cannot...the internet is about free distribution of most material if u have a problem with people saving it then restrict access to that part of the page to ppl u trust....or digitally sign all ur images using digmarc and have a big notice on your page saying the images are copyrighted and watermarked.

There are ways to deter but no hard and fast way to stop people ie. disabling their right to file and save as.

You can make the page full screen, then there would be no SAVE AS.
