While I agree that the plugin can protect basically many things, it's defeated in about 2 seconds by firebug (just open firebug and remove some selected tags from the rendered code, to reenable right click or selection) and Firefox Tools -> Page information to save the images.

It _will_ provide protection against unsavvy users that would just right click, it _will not_ protect anything against someone really decided to copy your content

Besides having the source encrypted with javascript does have a major drawback for SEO, since the spiders from the search engines will not interpret the javascript code, and will thus limit themselves to the meta tags in the headers.

All in all not a bad extension to have if you want to protect some pages on a site from the most basic copying techniques, but otherwise protect the access to the content instead.
Owner's reply: Hi, thanks for your review. We would like to point out that the product does not encrypt the source with javascript. It does not have such functionality. Feel free to contact us if you would like more information about the product.
I have used this extension on my support site that is intended for participant at welding workshops that I manage. This seems to be the best available extension when trying protecting from copying/stealing content. I have nothing to complain on, all works just as it says it should do.
I am establishing a consulting business so, I wanted to secure my content from copying.

I am on Joomla 3.2.2.

After testing some other plugins, which did not work as advertised, I found the Content Protector Advanced Edition.

The cost is very reasonable and the installation was quite easy (I am newbie).

After the installation, I noticed most pages were working just fine but, my home page and some other scattered content were not protected.

A quick email was sent and they responded within 90 minutes. After granting access, the issue was resolved in a few minutes.

It is working fine with all my content plus JomSocial, Kunena, Breezingforms, Babel-U and my other components so, I am very pleased.

I recommend this component to anyone wanting to secure their site.
I have bought this extension for protect to 360° my website content from copy&paste function, and it work greatly. For only 20$ you have a great product and a support team ready to help you, like in my case for some personalization necessary for my site!

Not really working

I just try 1 time, I block the javascript. You receive an alert. Fine, but after you reactivate the javascript, you can copy everything.

But spending 15$ for this kind of plugin is kinda weird.

Owner's reply: Hi, based on your review, we think that you did not fully install the product on your site (missing some files) which cause the issue you have face. Please contact our support to help you resolve this issue.

Must Buy!!!

Posted on 04 March 2011
If you have a heavily graphic influenced content in use on your site, this is a Must Have Extension. A historical site displaying original 18th and 19th Century web site is easily copyable by Internet Thieves. This little $15.00 USD plug-in is well worth the expense. The setup could not have been easier.

Where do I add a sixth star???

Its perfect !!!

Posted on 21 October 2010
Im using it a couple of months and it works just fine. Easy to install and setup and does exactly what the author says.

Great plagiarism deterrent

Posted on 08 September 2010
Does exactly what it says. I tried other free or cheaper alternatives, but they offer minimum functions compared to this flexible protecting extension. To mention my main interests, isolating protection to desired articles, disabling protection for authors while editing, disabling CTRL key combinations etc... everything works as stated.

Besides, good support and collaboration, my queries answered within 24 hours.

Worth every penny of the $15 I spent.
