I myself do not know any method to do this.
If a person can read the file, he can copy the file. (Permission wise)
You can put them in an archive and put a password on them but even then they'd need the password to open (read or copy) the files.

hmm...it just came to thought while reading this:
is there a good-for-one-use-only cd or media or file type?
a file like that could only be opened once. so its meaningless copying them.
kinda like a consumable file :)

There are encryption programs on the market for this, but they won't allow you to see the content, I think.

However, remember that almost everything can be bypassed. And there's no 'disposable' file as far as I know. You might need an external program to control that, and if you run it on Linux - for example, it won't work.

Well, maybe impressed isn't the right word. More like surprised or something like that.
I never searched cause I really didn't take it seriously. And here you are coming in with this link that would make me say "Really?!"

:)

Sometimes I feel I'm too easy too please. :)
Thanks man.
