Many people put extra effect to create web pages with their unique content. They do not want to allow users copy and paste their contents to any other web pages. They want to prevent their contents from copy and paste. They want to make it as a unique content. Make sure, the bellow HTML and CSS code will help them a lot to prevent their contents from copy and paste.

In worst-case scenario, some users really want to refer your content. If you do these techniques in your blog or website, they will be troubled. Then no reference, no back links, no credits and no thanks to you and your website from these users.

Try to add these code in your blog or website if it is really needed.

<body ondragstart="return false" onselectstart="return false">

Add ondragstart and onselectstart attribute in HTML body tag. Both should return false.

    -moz-user-select: none;
    -webkit-user-select: none;
    -o-user-select: none;

On top of that add CSS to HTML body tag. This will prevent your whole web page from user selection and copy. If you don’t want to apply these prevention to whole web page, then create a separate CSS class and add this class where ever you want. This is the better alternative rather than apply to whole page.
