I'm using SP2007. I need to Render a PDF in a Document Library, in a page. But i need to restrict users from downloading, coping content or even printing the PDF file. Can this be directly in a PDF viewer done maybe using <embed> or <object>


Is there any tool that would be be able to use/customize according to my requirement ?

I get this question a lot (I work for a SharePoint PDF Conversion Company) and have recently started to recommend Foxit's Server based SharePoint PDF Reader.

This should be a lot easier to implement than a full IRM solution.

  • Thanks ! The downloads are for SharePoint 2010 & 2013, Is there a version for SharePoint 2007 as well?

  • You would need to ask Foxit. Feb 7, 2014 at 12:11

What you're describing is IRM, Information Rights Management and its built in to SP2007 (better in recent versions though).

Have a look at the following link for some additional information, its not the most straight forward to implement but could fulfill your needs.
