What is Plagiarism?

Well,this post was born as a result of how I tried and  protected my poetry blog "Inside My Poem Book" from  Plagiarism .So what is it ? Plagiarism means duplication of your web content .Your contents which is copyrighted in your name is used somewhere else in the Internet without your consents or permissions.Sometimes your work is displayed as their work and yet sometimes your work has been used several times in order to improve the plagiarizer web page without your notice.


I have been a victim of plagiarism wherein I fall on the latter category above.When I first saw that my content was plagiarized through Google Search , as all writer would be I was shocked.

I have already registered for "myfreecopyrights" and "Creative Common License" but they are like paper spread over the main meal.With a hard blow , the paper flies way revealing the food to tasted by nay on goers .Has no power unless the concerned person respects for presenting himself or herself with respect in a virtual world .In order to safe guard our food,further we will cover tightly inside a box ,or keep it in a place where it cant be seen .Like that ,thought we cant keep our contents unseen ,we still can protect it inside the box.

Steps:

1.Disabling Right -Click : 

Right-click is very use fulL of opening links in a new tab without losing the original page.But the same right -click has the "copy and paste "option will lets others to easily transfer our work into a word or text  processor .
Code to disable right click :


<script language="JavaScript">
<!--
//Disable right mouse click Script
//By Maximus (maximus@nsimail.com) w/ mods by DynamicDrive
//For full source code, visit http://www.dynamicdrive.com

var message="Sorry -Copyright Contents!";
///////////////////////////////////
function clickIE4(){
if (event.button==2){
alert(message);
return false;
}
}
function clickNS4(e){
if (document.layers||document.getElementById&&!document.all){
if (e.which==2||e.which==3){
alert(message);
return false;
}
}
}
if (document.layers){
document.captureEvents(Event.MOUSEDOWN);
document.onmousedown=clickNS4;
}
else if (document.all&&!document.getElementById){
document.onmousedown=clickIE4;
}
document.oncontextmenu=new Function("alert(message);return false")
// -->
</script>

2.Disabling Selection :

The text selection is used for copying certain texts which are highly useful tools for learning and writing from Internet.It is also used for repetition works.As always, like every positive having a negative ,this mode of selection helps the content stealer to steal your contents easily to his/her own blog or website

Code for disabling selection :


Paste this code after the </head> in your Design -Edit HTML -Edit Template .Kindle download your template before proceeding further.

<script language="JavaScript1.2">
function disableselect(e){
return false
}
function reEnable(){
return true
}
//if IE4+
document.onselectstart=new Function ("return false")

//if NS6
if (window.sidebar){
document.onmousedown=disableselect
document.onclick=reEnable
}
</script>

The above two codes are highly helpful unless you have your feeds burned in Feed Burner.In case,you have your feeds enabled then you got to do more to protect your blog.
