I downloaded and have been using this plugin, it works fine as expected. This plugin is great for adding source link whenever a user copies text from my website.

Доброго времени суток, Плагин хороший, мне понравился! У меня есть несколько идей: 1. Возможность исключать действия плагина для определённой группы пользователей (Администратор, Редактор, …) и/или автора поста. 2. Ограничить на объем скопированного: по символам (50, 100, 200, …), по абзацам (1, 2, 3, …). P.S. конечно эта идея сложна и принципе бесполезна, но не предложить я не могу 😉 В скопированном тексте плагин добавляет/меняет местами буквы и/или добавляет/меняет местами слова.

這真是太棒了,任何人想要複製我的文章,結果貼上之後卻只看得到我的文章標題與網址。這個外掛能夠保護我的文章不容易被複製,任何人想要得到我的文字,只能憑藉螢幕截圖或者是自己打字。 這是一個能夠避免文章被複製貼上的外掛! 希望這個外掛的安全性無虞,因為我發現最近一次更新是五個月前…

It is very helpful and useful! I have tried two similar plugins! This one is simple, while another one can let you see what posts or content have been copied. Both plugins are good.
