I dont like to speak badly of people and their buisness but these guys at copyno.com are simply trying to chizzle away peoples money with a cheap and ineffective Javascript trick.

Observe their so called "protection".

<A HREF="http://www.copyno.com/warning.shtml" TARGET="_blank"
onMouseOver="document.images['CopyNoImage1'].src='http://www.copyno.com/copynowarning.jpeg'"
onMouseMove="document.images['CopyNoImage1'].src='http://www.copyno.com/copynowarning.jpeg'"
onMouseDown="document.images['CopyNoImage1'].src='http://www.copyno.com/copynowarning.jpeg'"
onMouseOut="document.images['CopyNoImage1'].src='http://www.copyno.com/scream.gif'">

This is the code that displays the image called scream on the top-left of their homepage. The original image link is displayed in bold.

Its too easy to cirumvent, all you have to do is look for 'onmouseout' in the source code and you can see what the original image is.

I advise everyone who knows a web-artists who wants to use this program or who is already using it, to tell them that they are being cheated out of their money.
