I have File securer for it a long time. It can block files and folders. You can look it here:

You could also, assuming you want others to read, but not change it, save it as a PDF document.

PDF is a goos way to go and also you can add serurity with a password to the file to stop printing of the document. As far as I am aware office does not have such a feature. This however will not stop people from copying it just make it harder as you will never be able to stop screen shots and printing it that way.
