Preventing users from downloading videos

What: It would be a real value-added feature if Screencast gave me control over who can download and keep my videos for themselves.

Why: I like so many Screencasters work very hard to create our videos, and retaining control over my content is a high priority to me, as I would guess it is for anyone who goes the extra step to pay for a hosting service like Screencast (which I love!)

It seems odd that we can "hide" a video in our account so that it is only visible with a direct URL, but anyone can download it from our webpage without our permission. It's sort of a false sense of security. 

How it benefits me and others: I embed my videos on my subscription website. It's really important to me that my users can't just right-click on a video and download it. If the videos get posted elsewhere it will be a real problem for my business. 

Please consider making this a high priority. Thank you!
