How can I hide the 'duplicate' option in the 'more' button for a specific object

I needed to hide the 'duplicate' option for a specific object. I resolved this programmatically by inheriting the 'copy' method as follows: 

 def copy(self, cr, uid, id, default=None, context=None): 
raise osv.except_osv(_('Warning!'),_("Duplicate is not allowed"))

I need to enhance this by hiding this options from the 'more' options button, how can I do that? 


After I did my solution, I checked again and found this link, I followed the same reasoning.  But I need a solution by using groups and rules similar to this one, this is more elegant.
