    As Randy stated many websites disable the right click option to deter visitors from copying their material. Belzarc also stated there are workarounds to this disability but goes against the wishes of the Webmaster who disabled the right-click functions and I am sure placed a copyright protection statement on their site. By them doing so we at TSG are not allowed to help one override copyrights.

    Oh and Gentleman I removed all the posts in this thread because it was turning to Flame!
    Belzarc... Randy is technically correct that it is a violation of the originating Webmasters copyright and these type of disputes need to be taken offline and into Private Messaging!

    If you can't rightclick and choose "copy", try highlighting the text to be copied, and press Ctrl + C.
    That often does work.

    We understand the dilemma but the giving the instructions on how to do it would be a violation of TSG rules since the owner of the website has locked the function and probably placed a copywrite restriction on the page.
