Discussion on: How to prevent pasting into input fields

I think it may depend on why the email address is needed. For example on the Chase bank website, when you are trying to send money to another person using their email address, they make you confirm the email address by typing it in twice, and you cannot paste it.
This prevents you from accidentally sending money to the wrong person, and I think this is a reasonable safety measure to take in that situation.
