Perhaps you would like to share your Word document with others but would like to prevent them from or editing your document.
Word 2010 allows you to safely share your document but prevent others from editing it with document protection.
From the Review Tab, the Protect section, click on Restrict Editing. From the menu on the right, the Editing Restrictions section check "Allow only this type of editing in this document" and now you have 4 options that will restrict what users can do with your document, "No changes, read only", "Filling in forms", "Comments" and "Tracked changes".
Selct "No changes, read only" and provide a password. Now users who don't have the password will only be able to read your document without being able to copy for it or perform any other editing as long as document protection is enabled. All the options will be disabled, including the "cut, copy, paste" commands.
