Hi ranasrule,

Not possible with, when user has read permission, he can copy file. You can prevent deletion of file or allow write changes, but can't prevent copying files.
There is a solution which can control this type of operations (copy, view, mail) it's called Windows Rights Managment Services, but has complex deployment.
