Uh..not really sure if this belongs in this forum.

I was wondering if it was possible to distribute a file like a pdf such that it can only be read on one computer (much like a program can only be used on 1 computer)? And also if there is software that does this for me or something of that nature? I am looking to sell a pdf to some friends of mine but I don't want them just copying it for other people. Thanks.

Just to give you an answer and bump your topic
Not that I'm aware of
Suffice it to say, if some one wants it bad enough they will get a copy of anything.
