I have disabled right click saving on all my photos posted on Flickr, but Google image search allows right click saving. They override the Flickr setting. When you click on the thumbnail the image on Flickr is displayed in full size and Google enables all my images for right click save. This needs to be stopped immediately.

I suggest we all report that here, each for their own images. http://www.flickr.com/abuse/. I have included the Google search result link to my images on Flickr in the report.

Why do you think this matters?

If it's posted openly on the Web it's downloadable, and right-click disable only takes a few seconds to bypass.

So stealing a car with a screwdriver doesnt matter because you can do it with a another tool as well?

I am just letting people know.

And I'm just reminding them that right-click disabling is a complete waste of time anyway in deterring image piracy, while discouraging legitimate viewing - you can't right-click > Open in new tab.

Which is why we never post anything important over 600px or without a watermark.

Yes, I know all that, but Google shouldnt be overriding user settings.

Totally agree. 

Disabling right click might not stop a tech savvy thief, but I think it does deter casual ones.

If you want to PM me a URL, I'll try to right-click save one of your Flickr images from Google.

I did, but I didnt have an immediate response. Sorry.

Toon Vectore just explained it quite well, so there is nothing we can do about it.
