I can think of the following, untested and *very* inaccessible & 
unusable "solutions":

* By using a print-stylesheet where the font color is white (may not 
work though)
* By using only background images instead of text (inaccessible)
* By using Flash to write text

All of these solutions won't stop the determined people though. The real 
question is why you don't want people to print it? Perhaps you should 
make some content available only for registered users?
