You're in luck with the answer above (AD RMS), IF you are talking ONLY about MS products (like Word Excel etc).
If not (just files like zip/pdf etc), you may have to buy some other third part software (and those might not actually bock the copying, just report it). That's because copying is kinda inherent to reading rights (and even after you buy all the expensive software, in worst case, people can still take pictures of the screen with their mobile phones.)

Agreed with AD RMS and using third party solutions - even then, people have digital cameras and preventing them from taking it is not generally practical... the most you can do is make it annoying to try... but those that want, will get.
