Protecting a PowerPoint presentation

By hdahman ·
Is there a way to password protect a powerpoint presentation so that it cannot be copied or saved as another name?
I have a presentation created in PowerPoint 97 that I would like to email to individuals but I do not want them to be able to copy or save the slides. If I save as read only they can just save it under another name.

You can't do it directly, but you could convert to a PDF file or see this reference:

www.mvps.org/skp/securepack/index.htm

"Secure Pack is the ideal solution for distributing PowerPoint? presentations. Protect presentations from being changed by the viewer who receives them. With the Secure Pack Wizard, any Microsoft PowerPoint? user can quickly package one or multiple presentations into a SINGLE executable show. You can also include the files linked within them in the archive and distribute them for viewing and/or editing. Easily distribute this show on CD's or upload it to the your website for downloads. It converts the presentations into a valuable protected information resource that can be viewed exactly as you want it be viewed."

There's no way to prevent someone from copying/saving or printing the slides.

Anyone can capture screen printouts, save to individual files, put them together, and "steal" your presentation.

They can also recreate them, (maybe not prefectly)with their own fonts/graphics, if they really want to do so.
