Can't copy and paste on a lot of sites?

I don't know if you've run into this or it's just me but a lot of Thai sites don't let you copy text. Does anyone know why or if there's some way to get around that?
thanks

You may be trying to copy and paste a graphic instead of text.

Some news sites (Thai Rath is a good example), have disabled the copy function on their web pages, presumably to stop secondary news aggregators from wholesale ripping-off of their content.

There probably are ways around it, and not even very complex ones, if one took the trouble to pursue it.

Thairath works for me.

Could you (or anyone) send me a link directly to a page which it doesn't work on?

Thairath seems to have changed its policy - the website has been revamped fairly recently so they may have got rid of the annoying no right-click thing at the same time. What I used to use there was the righttoclick addon for Firefox, which allows one to override theses blocks.

That page works for me. I can copy both the text and the image(s).
