Can I show an image using Silverlight and prevent it from being copied?

I hope to write a Silverlight and/or a Silverlight out of browser application involving certain images which can be viewed by certain users.

How can I disable the clipboard when a picture has the focus? Or remove the "Copy" menu item from the context menu on a right click on that image?

(I assume I will be running in the browser)

I don't want the user to copy the picture and thereby make the picture public.

Thanks,

also, I guess I would also need to block Windows from enabling the PrtScrn feature as well.  Otherwise they willl take a picture of the entire window and carve out the picturte they want to see...

Check the clipboard content periodically when the window is active. If it suddenly contains an image, just discard the clipboard content.

Wouldn't I need to check it, say, 500 Milliseconds after every keystroke? Then I ensure that I delete the clipboard before they have time to copy it to MS Paint?

But i'sn't there a more direct way to block the feature?  I'd need to block "Save picture as..." as well.

I need to be able to force the use of my context menu when it's a JPG background, then remove certain options from that new menu I impose.

Do you konw how to do this?
