It depends on what you mean. Let me try to answer your question a couple of ways:
1) If you are talking about only displaying certain information to your clients and not to your competitors, you can create a password-protected section of your site to help secure your sensitive information.
2) If you worried about clients taking the information you provide them and using it for some other purpose (competitors, research, etc), then your best bet might be to present the data in some sort of format where you can control the Digital Rights Managment (DRM) associated with a document. I know you can do this with Adobe Acrobat. I think you can get pretty specific about what actions you can allow and restrict - for example, I think you can even set it up so that you can't print or email an acrobat file without proper authorization.
Sorry about the choose-your-own adventure style answer, but I wasn't too sure what exactly you meant. Why don't you pick a number and we'll see a little more about what exactly your problem is.
Thank you, Michael, for your choices. I have content that I display on the screen; the content gives feedback to a person. I don't want a person to cut and paste the content. I have run across websites where I could not cut and paste the material for some reason. If I did view|source I was not able to cut and paste the material from the source page either. I wondered what software there is that I could use to adhieve this effect.
I'm not that familiar with software that allows you to protect content in that way. Do you remember the sites that you remember experiencing that level of content protection?

i think flash, with proper publishing settings, will let you do that...
is there a tool to extract content from swf files which are published
with "protect from import" setting? probably is...
If you dont want it stolen, don't post it on the web. Nothing is safe.
Everything can be taken, even by something as simple as a screen print.
