    There is no way to prevent that from happening.

    WP-Copyprotect plugin can help you.

    Show excerpts instead of full posts. That's only helpful if they scrape your RSS feed though. You can't prevent someone from copying the content manually.

    Although if you use any tool for copy protection, manual copying of the content by someone can never be stopped. Using the tool you can reduce the chances of contents being copied easily.

    Copying content by selecting the text can be prevented by wp copyprotect or disabling right click on your web page but if someone writes the content by seeing your content then it can't be protected.

    I don't understand. Why would you publish anything on a blog you don't want copied? If you try to make it impossible for people to copy, by installing plugins to secure your blog, your blogs will likely end up not being friendly to visitors. Then visitors quickly exiting your blog will just dramatically increase your bounce rate. The best approach is to never publish anything on a blog you don't want copied. If it is strictly images you don't want copied, because they are proprietary (ones you've created yourself) install a watermark plugin for WordPress images. You can also watermark them, before uploading them to your blog gallery. Or have a coder build one for you for as little as $50.00 on Odesk.com. I hope this helps.

    Installed wp-copyprotect, I'll think about whether it's worth keeping on there. For those really concerned with their work being copied at least set up Google Authorship on your Blog and for thing like the above-poster mentioned about material being copied onto sites with AdSense on them, you'd think Google would figure out what's going on.
