Preventing Copy and Paste


I am fairly new to Confluence so please excuse me but I am intending to put material on my space that is just for members of my community and wish to disable any form of copying and pasting from the space. Is this possible? Also if I would like to just restrict this further to a larger community but not create users for each person how would I do that, if that is possible.

Thank you

No, if someone can read a page, then there are always ways to copy it.

You could try some javascript that asks the browser not to allow copy, but the browser is free to ignore it, and that sort of thing is very easy to bypass.  If nothing else, fetch the page content over REST.
