Is there a way to prevent copying my public boards ?

I like to work with Trello, and I consider it as a great toll.

However, there is something I miss on my Trello boards.

If you’ve created a Trello Board within many infinite hours of work, and you would like to provide this board publicly (with read only rights), but you don’t want anyone to make a free copy of the entire work or boards you have done.

Is there a way or possibility to protect my work ?

Hi Wang,


Unfortunately, at this time, it's not possible to prevent your public Trello board from being copied. I can definitely see how this would be useful for you, but this isn't something that we're planning on adding at this time. I'll let the team know you're looking for this, though!

Hi Michael,

that's really too bad. Please keep me up, when your team has found a workaround for it! As I really need this function.

Thank you very much for your help.

Best regards

I don't think it's technically possible.  If I can see something, I can copy it.

My idea behind that was just, it would be great if there would be a way just to hide or disable this feature, if needed.
