Every good blogger out there is trying to get the most of their blog by creating good and readable content(s) on daily basis, while there are those bloggers that want to just lazy around and steal the content by directly copying another blogger’s article word-for-word and paste it on their blog.
Sometimes, it is not the copy and pasting that angers some bloggers, it is the fact that they are not given credit for thier work, so this has made many bloggers, I included, disable the right-click button from their site. With the right click button disabled on a site, almost no user can just come to the site and copy the content and go, you won’t be allowed to do so.
To spoil the party, I want to let you know that despite disabling right-click on your website, your contents can still be copied by another person. If you notice now, you can copy the contents on my blog, that’s because I removed the plugin that helped me disable the CTRL+C function and right-click function. This is due to personal reasons.
To always cut the long story short, I’m going to show you some ways in which you can copy content from a protected website. This is for educational purposes only please be advised to always link back to the source where you copied the content from to stay safe.

2, By using a browser extension
A browser extension is a small software module for customizing a web browser. Browsers typically allow a variety of extensions, including user interface modifications, ad blocking, and cookie management. Browser plug-ins are a separate type of module.
There are many types of extensions that you can use to re-enable the right click on a website, if you are using Google Chrome to browse, just go to chrome.google.com and search for Right To Copy and from the list of results, choose the one that best suits you.
That’s how you can be able to re-enable right-click on a website and copy content from it without any hassle. I can’t assure you that this procedure works 100% but I can give it a 70% rating. What about you, how do you rate this tutorial, let’s hear your thought via the comment box below.
