Great New Tynt Tracer Javascript

This is a post that I had previously written on my "Good Dirt Jewelry" blog. Knowing that so many of our wonderful fiber artist friends author their own blogs where they show their original work, I thought this information was worth sharing here :)

Have you ever had someone use one of your photos without permission, or even worse, "borrowed" your idea completely? I have just discovered the neatest little bit of javascript by
Tynt, that can be added to your blog or website that alerts you every single time one of your visitors right-clicks and saves your content!

What does Tracer do?

Tracer secretly tracks when users copy content from your web site and automatically adds a link back to the original page when your content is pasted. Tracer allows you to view statistics on how often content is copied from your site, what that content is and what keywords are being copied most.

I was just beginning to think the script I had added to this blog wasn't working properly until this morning when I got a report about the photos and text of a blog post about Dave's picot gauge set being "borrowed".
