So, I have compiled a list of 5 WordPress Plugins To Protect Your Content From Being Copied:

1) WordPress Prevent Copy Paste Plugin

Personally, I am using this plugin to protect the content from being copied. There are four options viz Posts protection(It means you can disable selection of texts), Disable Right Click Option(To protect your images being copied), Protection by CSS(to protect the content even without JavaScript) and Home Page protection. Though, I have enabled Right click option because else it gives bad user experience as you can’t open content in new tab.
