Hi, I have created a gmail account for a large group of people - giving all the log in @ gmail.com and all using 1 password to access.

In this g mail account there is a presentation that is holding links, photos, PDFS,  videos etc for all to access and view BUT how do I ensure as the owner of the presentation that VIEW only is VIEW only and that people cannot take from the presentation?

I tested it today and eeek - I could download and save from the presentaion even though it is set up as view only...

Or is there another suggested way to host this presentation and allow families across the words to access it as VIEW only?

    Agreed that there is no way to stop people editing or downloading if they have access to the account where it was created. If you have another Google account you could move the presentation to it. You can share the presentation with the other account and then change the other account to the owner once you've shared it. Then you can 'unshare' it from the original account and then provide access using one of Rob's ideas above. Google Apps for ed would allow you to give people individual accounts so you have more control of the content for individuals.
