Two ContentBlog readers, Adam Gaffin, Executive Editor Network World Fusion, and Shirl Kennedy, self-described Writer, librarian, and online copyright whiplash victim, have written in to say there are common work-arounds to break the No Right Click DRM function easily.
However, as my Tech Editor Alexis Gutzman says, "Yes they exist, but the majority of people are like you Anne, too technically clueless and/or just plain honest to use them."
I still think the no right click DRM is an idea worth exploring for publishers worrying about copyright online. Let's face it, every type of DRM is breakable by someone. Maybe perfect DRM is not a rational goal. Good enough DRM is. For many purposes a simple solution will be ok 80% of the time, so why not use it?
