Topic: Stop PDF files from being copied

Hello all,

I was wondering if there is a way to stop pdf files from being copied at say the file system level on WIN and maybe UNIX/LINUX OS? For example if someone downloads a pdf file can the pdf file refused to be copied or gets corrupted when copied? Thinking about it would there be some kind of encryption involved?

Plus does anyone know of a way to control the amount of times a file can be downloaded from a web site. For instance in a person pays for 1 copy of the file can you restrict the user to only download once? I know this is not a direct pdf and maybe requires some dynamic ftp folder creation for each customer.

Regards

Zanis
