Removing my answer as it's obviously incorrect. But my best guess is that they're using some javascript to modify the context menu. Here's some info from stackoverflow: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/24020321/how-to-disable-save-image-as-option-on-right-click

I wish I could help you out, but I have no idea.

Hi Wayne,

I don't think there's any JavaScript involved, I think the option is just disabled because the background is applied in css to a pseudo-element (in this case div.c-landing::before) and has a z-index of -1, so no matter where you right click on the page, you won't be able to directly access the background image.

If any of that is unclear, let me know.

Thanks, Joel
