    All you have to do to defeat this plug-in is view the source of the document, in which all text apepars and can be copied. Viewing source exists as a readily available menu item in most browsers. This plug-in, therefore, provides no copy protection.

    It's actually impossible to print any text on a website and protect it from being copied, as OP said you can just view source or more than likely just disable javascript...

    The only true way to protect your content from copy/paste is to put it into a image for web display (maybe a PDF?), but then again nothing is going to stop someone manually re-writing it. Additionally, this will mess up your page rank for this page.

    tl;dr: Don't bother trying.
