There is no foolproof method to completely prevent website content from being copied. However, here are some measures you can take to deter unauthorized copying:

  1. Implement copyright notices: Include a copyright notice on your website, informing users that the content is protected and unauthorized copying is prohibited.
  2. Disable right-click: You can disable the right-click function on your website to prevent users from easily copying content. However, this method can be easily bypassed by knowledgeable users.
  3. Use encrypted text: Convert your text content into images or use encryption methods that display content as coded characters, making it harder to copy and paste.
  4. Utilize watermarking: Add a visible watermark to images and videos, making it more difficult for someone to use your content without permission.
  5. Disable text selection: Use CSS or JavaScript to disable text selection on your website. This can deter casual copying, but it can still be bypassed.
  6. Utilize digital rights management (DRM): For more advanced protection, you can employ DRM technologies that apply encryption and access control mechanisms to your website or specific content.
  7. Monitor and enforce: Regularly monitor the internet for instances of content theft. Whenever you identify unauthorized copying, send a cease and desist letter or take legal action if necessary.

Despite these measures, it is important to note that determined individuals may still find ways to copy your content. Thus, it is advisable to focus on creating high-quality, unique content and establishing legal protections through copyright registration and terms of use agreements.
