Unfortunately, I don't know of a way to differentiate between opening a document and copying a document from a share.  

You can track who creates, modifies and reads documents from the share.  A free way is to turn on Windows Auditing (Right click the shared folder -> properties -> advanced -> auditing tab).  There are some commercial solutions available that allow for a better, easier way to manage the audit entries, but I've never used them so I can't say if they are great or not.

Try googling "audit file share windows 2003 software" -- several come up.
