Greasemonkey script (or Firefox extension) to stop sites from disabling copy-paste?

Greasemonkey script (or Firefox extension) to stop sites from disabling copy-paste?

Is there a GreaseMonkey script to disable the JavaScript-disabling of copy-paste in Firefox (3.0)? Or should I just run NoScript or some other extension on any site that attempts this (other things might break...)?

"I don't often toot my own horn. I actually was searching if anyone had a better method than my script:

http://userscriptsdotorg/scripts/show/131063

Ultimately, I'd like there be an option within the browser that blocks javascript entries to onpaste events."

Just disable the following option in Firefox's Javascript settings (it won't disable the warnings, as they are Javascript messages, but the context menu cannot be disabled by the web pages anymore):
