Image Protection with jQuery

Once an image is publicly available on the internet, there are many ways to make a local copy of it. There are also a number of ways that try to prevent such unauthorized downloads.

It is easier to focus on content when working with a WYSIWYG editor. I can always switch to view the source code if I need to do more complex editing. As I continue to document my Drupal experiences, I wanted to use a ...
