I might be wrong here, but I will give it a shot! I do believe there is a feature that stops this from being done, my friend has a lock on copying for his PDF, not sure how he did it! As soon as I find out from him, I will post it here.

Hi, I'd love to know how to do this as well since I also sell online ebooks....
I have some ebooks I wrote also and have been looking fro a solution for some time. I actually had an ebook that I tried to lock and then sent it to my hosting provider ( smart geek) and he cracked it and sent it back in 5 minutes? Unbelievable...it makes you mad after all the hard work.
Hopefully someone if smart enough...I will keep looking.
Thanks everyone for the help!
I'll check out those features in adobe Ken!
