After my client downloads a PDF to their computer I don't want them to be able to share it with anyone else. Is this possible?

No. You can't prevent people from copying a file on their computer, or to other computers.

With DRM you can control the usage of documents.

Everyone can copy a password-protected file.

Do they need the PDF itself on their computer?
Our jPDFViewer would let you present a PDF in a browser display, retaining control of the PDF, so they cannot download it to their computer.   This eliminates their ability to share that file.
 
If you need to gather information from them onto the PDF, you could use our jPDFNotes.  Again presenting the PDF via browser, accepting their comments/notes, yet retaining control of the PDF.
