Securing Bitbucket Code


Please I need your help in something that we don't know if this is available or not so we will ask you directly,


When developers work on Bitbucket repo code they download it to their local laptops and work on it then upload it to the bitbucket again, is there any way that we can prevent the users from copying and pasting or sending this code to them selfs through email form the local downloaded repo.


In other words, is there a way to prevent Bitbucket code locally from being copied or send to an external email?

And of course, once someone has a copy of something they can do what they want with it.
