Any way to protect images from being copied in survey?

Our surveys will contain proprietary information and will need to be protected. I know it's impossible to completely guard against copying images, but if it was made harder, that would ease some concerns.

We would like to be able to disable "Print Screen," Copy (an image), and the Print (to a printer) functions.

Yeah, this certainly does come up for discussion from time to time.  My personal favourite is to disable right click, which of course only discourages the unimaginative and the generally honest.

Given that the comments on the old forums are from 2005, has anyone come up with any new favourites to help give clients the feeling that we are at least doing SOMETHING?  Of course, it's necessary to warn them of the dangers of letting their precious concepts loose on the web prematurely as well.
