There are ways to make virtually anything difficult to download, and by that I mean you can't just right click on it and download.  Take a look at many newspaper sites and what they do with photographs.  I can't remember the actual HTML code if I ever knew it in the first place.


That being said, I don't know of any way, or even close to it, to absolutely prevent it.   I long ago figured out how to get at things by using the "View Source" option and doing a bit of investigation.  If it can be accessed by the public for viewing it can be accessed by the clever/diligent public for downloading.


If those downloads are strictly for private use I've never found that problematic, since it's just changing how it's available to the end-consumer.  Theft for public use or private profit is another issue entirely as is any attempt to pass of someone else's work as one's own.
