Uncopyable Webpages?

  dublincity 16:13 08 Apr 2005

I've come across websites before where high quality photographs (for sale) can't be copied.

What's the technology?

I've just come across a site with a page of data that I need. My cursor arrow flashes in red & white, nothing happens when I right-click and nothing on the page can be highlighted. But I've printed out the page.

--------- haven't yet tried to e.mail it to myself

Does anybody know how the page might be copied?

Copyright protected and not clickable. Though try looking in internet temp files.

Thanks. I went through the motions of e.mailing the page to myself. It was despatched but didn't arrive.

Next, I repeated the procedure but kept the unsent message. I have copied that successfully so - mission accomplished!

CopyRight © You can press Print Screen then past into a photo edit program but the quality will not be very good

D'you mean the Print Preview? I can't copy that.

No the Print Screen key will copy the desktop, you can then paste it into a photo edit program to crop it etc

Thanks - never heard of the Print Screen key. Where is it?

Ah - I see the key. Cheers.

Save As? That usually works - I'll go back to the copyrighted site which is awkward and try it ....
