I believe not implementing this would violate the DMCA and put the
package maintainer at risk of being jailed on her next USA visit. We
could lay the decision into the hands of the users, however. For cut and
paste, show an extra dialogue asking whether you really want to copy (of
course with a "Do not show this dialogue again" button). For print, just
extend the safety question that should pop up anyway.
