How To Disable JavaScript Copy Protection on Website for Google Chrome

Isn't annoying how hard it is to pirate sites like PEP, especially when we filipinos now have a license to plagiarize. By running a JavaScript program, these sites prevent you from copying their work by disabling right-clicking and text highlighting on their content, content that these sites themselves copy from other websites and they even have the gall to not credit their sources.

The steps below will show you how to easily crack this copy protection. I'm pretty sure that other browsers will have similar menus, but for the sake of clarity I will only be using Google Chrome.
  1. Click on the wrench icon () to open Google Chrome Options
  2. Under the Hood > Content Settings > JavaScript > Exceptions > Add
  3. Pattern: www.pep.ph
  4. Action: Block
  5. Click OK > Close > Close > Close
  6. Pirate away!

  1. You can disable the protection without disabling JavaScript with the code on this page: http://pastie.org/1402647 Paste that into your address bar and then hit enter. You'll have to do that on every page load, though.
