Here is a example which blocks R M B click for entire web page.

You want only for images ? to copy protect images. let me know.


<html>
<head>
<title>Untitled Document</title>
</head>

<body>
<script language="javascript">
var fnPtr = null;
function Block () {
fnPtr = document.oncontextmenu;
document.oncontextmenu = function () { alert('OOPS'); return false;};
}
function UnBlock () {
document.oncontextmenu = fnPtr;
}
</script>
This lets you block and unblock the contextmenu (enable by Right Mouse Button (RMB) click.
<br>

<form>
      <input type="button" onClick="Block();" value="Block R M B" title="Click to Block R M B menu for img1">
      <input type="button" onClick="UnBlock();" value="UnBlock R M B" title="Click to Un Block R M B menu for img1">
</form>
</body>
</html>

I am assuming you do not want user to give any control, hence a following code.
This one protects images from copying ( on image toolbar for IE and RMB menu)

<html>
<head>
<!--- Required for IE -->
<META HTTP-EQUIV="imagetoolbar" CONTENT="no">
<title>Fade Slide Show Document</title>
</head>
<title>Untitled Document</title>
</head>
<!-- Set the R M B BLOCK ON IMAGE -->
<body onLoad="Block();">

<script language="javascript">
function Block () {
document.getElementById('img1').oncontextmenu = function () { return false; };
//document.oncontextmenu = function () { return false;};
}
</script>
This one does copy protect the image only.
<br>
<img id="img1" src="../images/0.gif" width="100">
</body>
</html>

I do not understand your comment. Please explain

For background image you may need to specify the style attribute as follows:

<a href="..." style="background-image: url(yourimage.gif); width: 500px;height: 500px;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</a>
