Can I protect my Word document from being printed?

I'm in school and writing up a grant proposal. As there has been some theft of works around here, I was wondering if there was a way to watermark my document?

I know photographers can do it but I haven't been able to figure out how in Word. It's Office 2010 if that helps at all. I'd like the mark to be as discreet as possible since this will be shown on a projector.

Thank you in advance for your help.

  3. To view a watermark as it will appear on the printed page, use Print Layout view.

Also you can protect the document.

Information Rights Management (IRM) allows individuals and administrators to specify access permissions to documents, workbooks, and presentations. This helps prevent sensitive information from being printed, forwarded, or copied by unauthorized people.

After permission for a file has been restricted by using IRM, the access and usage restrictions are enforced no matter where the information is, because the permission to a file is stored in the document file itself.

Install the Windows Rights Management Services (RMS) Client:

  1. In Microsoft Windows, click the Start button, and then click Control Panel.
     
  2. Click Add or Remove Programs, and then click Add or Remove Programs. In the left pane, click Add New Programs. From the list of programs, click Windows Rights Management Services Client, and then click Add.
     
  3. Note: In Classic view, double-click Add or Remove Programs, and then in the left pane, click Add New Programs. From the list of programs, click Windows Rights Management Services Client, and then click Add.
