jQuery Code Snippet to disable the mouse right click as often used with websites who want to add some low level security. jQuery can do this with a bind to the contextmenu event. I reccommend only using this function if you have to as it is generally bad practice.

$(function() {
	$(this).bind("contextmenu", function(e) {
		e.preventDefault();
	});
});
