I have this requirement where some files in a document library file must be visible in the library list, but not available to be downloaded.

I know how to implement this with custom components, handlers, etc.

Just wondering what is the best way to leverage OOB components / functionality to achieve this without writing too much code.

Any Ideas

I think what you need is "Information Rights Management".

You have to restrict the access to "View Listitems" ("A user can read the document, but cannot copy or modify its content.").
