Topic: Making an ebook TOTALLY secure. (Via Email)

I ordered a story from eHarlequin to see how it goes. When I received my PDF version I opened and saved it so I could read it. However, I was NOT able to copy it, print it, or in any way reproduce it. I e-mailed it to my wife, who could not access it at all. THAT'S WHAT I WANT TO BE ABLE TO DO! But I can't make it work. I have a few free trials left and I don't want to waste them.
No matter what I try, the documents do not stay totally secure. When I send them to my wife, she is able to make a copy which she can then open with the password of the original. That means a customer who pays for my document need only copy it before sending it - and the password - to others. I CANNOT DO THAT WITH THE ONE I PURCHASED. If I recall correctly, I had no password to open the PDF story that I bought. I think I just clicked on the attachment and saved it. Then it just opened and I read it (as much as I could stand... a few paragraphs). Yet I could not copy or share it in any way.
Why can't I get my trial docs to be that secure, and without a password. The only clue I have is the reference to a "named" file. I don't understand what that is, and maybe it's the thing that's preventing my success.
Thanks for any help you can offer,
