McAfee shows off Social Protection app

At the second day of the Intel Developer Forum, the chip giant's McAfee division showed off a beta version of McAfee Social Protection. This new app and browser plug-in in designed to let you share photos on Facebook, but prevent other people from copying or print screening your pictures. HotHardware tested the app and found that screen capture apps like Hypersnap, Snagit and a simple print screen operation all failed to copy images protected by the McAfee app.
Probably one of the more entertaining moments in today's morning IDF keynote was when the McAfee Social Protection demo rep claimed, "McAfee Social Protection - It's like a condom for your digital life." The audience could relate to that concept pretty easily and it brought on hard guffaw from the crowd. All too often, folks just don't practice "safe Facebook" we guess...
You can view the video clip below for a demonstration:

Seems like a false sense of security to me. This "protection" can easily be defeated by a technique as simple as taking a photograph of your computer screen. If you don't want someone to copy your pictures, you shouldn't put those pictures online.
