      Hi There,
      You can use several Plugins to protect content of your WordPress Blog.

      WP Content Copy Protection
      Tynt Insight for WordPress
      Feed delay
      WP Content Copy Protection & No Right Click

      Those plugins will help to disable text selection and right click. But still a content thief can copy your content. I won't mention it here, because content theft can learn it from my comment. Hope you would understand.

      Thank you. :up
