comment interstitial page regularity
@matt - users are NOT rational at all (neither are people in general, even thought they like to think they are) - cached copy cos it seems to be down for me: webcache.googleusercontent.com/…

comment Is it ok to add content when the users selects and “copies” something on the page?
It still breaks universally expected behavior of copy/paste, which is to only copy/paste the text you highlighted. It violates the principle at a much higher level than just the application level

comment Disabling submit-button until the user has completed the form
The way you desribed it made it sound like you validate on the server side. What I am suggesting is catching the click event and only submitting the form once everything is up to scratch, vs allowing the form to get posted and having the user wait for the next page to load.

No, popup before submitting the form... So handle the click event with javascript and only if all preconditions are met then submit the form else show popup
