Browser Hijacking

Slashdot posted an interesting article about a guy who is being sued for publishing a commonly known workaround for the Javascript that disables the right clicking inside a website.

I’m no legal expert and wouldn’t be able to comment on the implications, but personally I find this kind of Javascript invasive to a persons home computer to take control of their browser. If questions must be raised, it should be as to why companies are still allowed effectively hijack controls on their users/customers computers.
