Because it doesn't stop people from being able to get the text + images .... so its a waste of code. You simply press f12 (on chrome) for example and its all there for that taking.

The same reason why you cannot hide you're page source, although there is a way to do it, its a waste of time people can still grab it with push of a single button on the keyboard.

There are instances where one would want to unhook a "right-click" event on web pages.

They may not be for the reasons you would use it for, but I'll give an example where it would be beneficial to stop right clicking:

You are running an emulated(no hardware requiring) application that attempts to have the UI(User Interface) match very closely to the real operating system.

This could be because of any reason, but mainly I would think if you ran an SaaS(Software as a Service) application with a custom client(web browser).

Now, right-clicking normally brings up an context menu with commonly used functions to a user's disposal.

These could potentially be appended to or replaced entirely, so it does something like create a CRUD(Create Read Update Delete) menu specific to the web site.

Other uses would be for uses in BB(browser based) Games, such as an FPS where right-click would be to dodge an attack or reload a weapon.

Although context menu's aren't supported(except Opera) at this time, there is some discussion going on about it.

Please see the following link for the proposed ideas: https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=13608
