How to prevent users copying a file from a network share

There's a share on the company file server where a user has requested I drop a video file on to. However he wants to prevent people from being able to copy the file to another location.

How can I go about doing this?

Its very difficult as the system cannot disinguis between accessing a file to read it and accessing a file to copy it. The only solution is to use some form of DRM or Information rights management - these will no prevent the file being copied, but they can prevent it playing on unauthorsed machines
