* Copy and paste
* proxy content through a machine under your control

Simple enough to get around for those concerns. Why does the browser
need to be the policeman, especially for XML that (other than some
huge document) cannot affect the user's session. With the 'ambient
authorization' you (the information leaker) at least know something
about the end user getting your content. With proxying or scraping,
you don't.

Laws exist that offer remedies to copyright infringement.
