Protecting copyright

I would like to include a cartoon in a web page, but prevent users from copying the file and running it elsewhere. Is there a way to do this? Eg: by making the output file run only when called from a page on my domain?

Thanks in advance for any ideas.

as far as i know there’s no possibility to avoid downloads when you have a uri to the movie file in your web page source code.
but you could use a streaming server to do it: you would have to convert the file to, say, a real media format (a .rm file) and let it stream from your server via an rtsp (real-time streaming protocol), but don’t ask me for more details :wink:

a copyrights hint is also to be included into the page contents. it’s your right to sue the infringers, and they should know this.
