Blogging society is not devoid of CopyCat. You can find them everywhere. How to stop their activities?

Often One person does all the works, creates a good article and propagates through his blog. Very next day, when he looks at the internet, what he finds is, his entire work has been published by so many people under their own names.
Google and other internet agencies are working hard to prevent the occurrence of such theft.
By the help of Plagiarism Checker, now one can find out very easily that whether the contents published on the internet is a CopyCat substance or some thing original published by the publisher.
The game of Cat and Rat is going on the cyber world since many years, we can not do much to stop such nuances. However, there are few precautions, which if taken by the publishers, they can certainly prevent the occurrence of such acts of mala fide copying of contents.

Why Blockquotes are left and allowed to be copy pasted. Obviously the publisher wants it to be so. When some one publishes some article, there may be some contents or codes which are needed to be copied for its execution by the user. Therefore the publisher enable copy paste option for those contents.
Copy Paste Option can be disabled in two ways. One by using the JavaScript and second by using the HTML codes. Here I will be putting down both ways for the user convenience.

Stopping CopyCat by Disabling Copy Paste Option Using JavaScript

  • Go to Blogger Dashboard > Layout
  • Click on Add a Gadget
  • Select HTML/JavaScript
  • Paste the following codes
  • Save it

<script src=’demo-to-prevent-copy-paste-on-blogger_files/googleapis.js’></script><script type=’text/javascript’> if(typeof document.onselectstart!=”undefined” ) {document.onselectstart=new Function (“return false” ); } else{document.onmousedown=new Function (“return false” );document.onmouseup=new Function (“return false”); } </script>

Sopping CopyCat by Disabling Copy Paste Option Using CSS Codes

  • Go to Blogger Dashboard > Template > Customize > Advanced > Add CSS
  • Copy paste the following codes at right side pane under ‘Add custom CSS’
  • Save it.

.post blockquote{-moz-user-select: text;-webkit-user-select: text;-ms-user-select: text;user-select: text;}
.post code {-webkit-user-select:text;-moz-user-select:text;-ms-user-select:text;user-select:text;}
body {-webkit-user-select: none; -moz-user-select: -moz-none; -ms-user-select: none; user-select: none;}

Note: The above CSS code disables Copy Paste option in Blogger except the Blockquotes. If you want to disable option for Blockquotes also, please use the following CSS code only.

body {-webkit-user-select: none; -moz-user-select: -moz-none; -ms-user-select: none; user-select: none;}

Hope this article will be able to STOP CopyCat at least to some extent the prevalent mischief of copying or stealing the contents on the internet.
Thanks. Enjoy blogging 🙂
