How do make a PDF file that is not downloadable from website?

Hello there
I've been asked by my boss to create a PDF file to upload to our website. But it needs to be view only and so other people should not be able to download it (i.e., save a copy of the file) from the website. Is this possible at all?
I need to have this done as soon as possible. Your prompt reply will be mostly appreciated.
Many thanks.

Thanks for all your answers.
I know how to make the pdf file non-printable and editable. However, my boss also wanted to make the pdf file non-downloadable. From all your comments, I guess the answer is 'no' unless I convert my pdf to some other format e.g., swf.

Cheers!
