What’s best for your wordpress.com hosted blog is watermarking your images or not placing any images and/or text that you don’t want stolen on the internet at all.
If you use the Duotone theme right click is disabled via CSS but that’s not available on any other themes. This is because anyone can find instructions on the internet and get around it in less than 20 seconds flat.
