Question Title: Restricting prospective customers saving/printing ability

i am currently working on a university project whereby I am setting up a ficticious business selling electronic books over the internet.  The book is received by the customer in PDF format, however for the business to be a success there really needs to be a restriction on Printing/saving permissions to stop customers, say printing it off and giving it to thier friends.

I am a bit perplexed regarding the best way to deal with this detail of the business.  I don't know whether it is possible to restrict printing completely or if possible, it would be best to restrict printing to only one copy

Any help or recommendations would be gratefully appreciated

thanks
