you could try trapping the key in a small flash script...not sure if that works.

Are you going to disable the edit menu, and the right mouse button? While your at it why not disable the File menu too!

But honestly, what is it you are trying to protect on your site?

I found this in google, and its wrapping up my sentiments:
Quote:
You can search the other posts in the same list. Some of them talks
about almost the same thing as you requested. But as a general rule, and
IMO, I don't think disabling Ctrl+A and Ctrl+C is enough. They can always
use context menu and choose "Copy", or even more intuitively : select with
the mouse and drag 'n drop !

Well, maybe you could disable right mouse button, but I'm not sure
you could disable mouse select or even drag n drop.

If you want a reasonable protection to your document, just don't use
HTML ! Because it's against its nature : HTML is supposed to be open. Use
PDF, IMO, is simpler than Flash and you could specify that the document text
can't be selected.
