Senario stated by u is technically not possible.

as
Minimum access to make users able to access the specific shared folder files is read. so that  they can open those file.

again
Minimum access to allow copy is also read.

as the previous expert has stated absolutely impossible. in as much as it is impossible to stop someone borrowing a library book from making a copy on a photocopy machine, it is impossible to stop a person from being able to read but not make a copy of a network file. opening from the network involves access to copy to memory, and copy from memory to disk is a local operation.
