make text unable to be copied

Is there a way to make text unable to be copied from a PDF?

If your PDF driver supports it or you have Acrobat and can edit PDFs, then you can set the flags to disallow copying.  That just disables the normal copy and paste though so it depends on how 'uncopyable' you want it to be.  Basically anything that appears on the screen can be copied one way or another.  But disallowing copying will make it more difficult.
