Does disabling "Show a link to download the H5P below each content" make it impossible for an user to download the content?

My customer is very strict about their copyrights. They are willing to use H5P but their concern is that their content would not spread. Their content will be in a password-protected WordPress page, and their requirement is that nobody must be able to download or distribute their content. So my question is that if "Show a link to download the H5P below each content" setting is disabled, are there any other ways for users to download or distribute the content?

There are certain techniques
There are certain techniques that may stop non-technical users from beeing able to download content on web. For all others, there are always ways of getting content saved locally, since all content are downloaded by the browser :)
If "Show a link to download the H5P below each content" is disabled, the user may not download the H5P-file which contains all content and files for the H5P.
The requirement "nobody must be able to download or distribute their content" may only be implemented in one way, that is by stopping the webserver ;)

I guess that it is right to
I guess that it is right to say that the H5P modules contains "a kind of structured mix" of HTML5 and Java Script.
What comes out in the browser will be the Java Script and the HTML5 code, but not the structure of a H5P module, so in one way there is a kind of security against "copy the site content" - did I understand it right ?

An H5P may contain both
An H5P may contain both libraries and content, where:
What H5P gives you is the possibility to make the users of your site download H5Ps (both content and libraries). Note that this is configurable.
