    How do I prevent file copy from server?

    On 2003 server using active directory, I need to place a few MP4 files in a specific directory, allow users to access and view them BUT prevent downloading, saving, copy, etc of the videos, without interferring with their usage of other databases in other directory's(that require full rights). Any easy suggestions ?

    Thanks,

    Files permissions won't help you much because if you can read something you can save/copy/download it anywhere you like...

    Take a look at Rights Management Services. Not sure it's available to Server 2003. If it is, it may not give you all the features you need, but there are others such as GigaTrust that may have a solution.

    Might be an expensive option though......
