I am not very sure but if you want to prevent your users from saving the document, then you might use a PDF file with save disabled. I got this idea because I have a pdf copy of Ed Romans EJB book which I am not able to print...(It is print restricted) ------------------ Shubhrajit

I've downloaded that pdf copy, too. But save is not inhibited. If you look on the security options, nothing concerns saving permissions. I suspect that you can't block the save option on pdf files... but I'm not sure. :-?

This topic has been discussed recently in the JDJList email list. There were a lot of ideas thrown out there. Something that you can do is to protect the document with a password. This won't stop the person from copy/paste the text but it could stop them from saving the document. Probably the best idea that was discussed was that of creating the document as a pdf file. This can be easily accomplished from Word by printing the document to the Acrobat PDF Writer. I think it's a free download and it looks just like a printer but it allows you to save the document as a pdf file.
