Hi there
How are you copying the image from the web -- and is it a PRIVATE copyrighted image.

The simplest way of copying any image from the web (also by-passes all those clever coders who "disable right mouse" / context menu to prevent people from grabbing an image) is to simply use the Snipping tool.

There isn't any code that disables this.

When you right click image in IE9 and click Copy, it looks like it copies information about the image, but not the image itself. When you paste, it most likely is loading the picture from the internet again.

You can check that by opening an image, right-clicking Copy, shutting down you internet connection and trying to paste it in Word (in Office 2010 it doesn't work).

In Firefox it works (images retrieved from cache).

Snipping is a nice tool, but if your are snipping high-quality image which is zoomed out, you will lose quality.

I just right click "Save Image (or Picture) as". ie. download as say .jpg, or whatever it is, first then insert into the document.
If it doesn't let you do this then store a snip as stated above.

If you are distributing your document I don't have a clue about the copyright issues!
