How to hide Move or Copy from Document Library SharePoint online

Dear Support, In SharePoint online there is new feature added Move or Copy in Document Library. I don't want Move or Copy option in document library as users are moving the documents from one folder to another which is data duplication. Could you please how to disable this feature so user will not use this option to move or copy the document. Thanks

    Hi @SharePointDev ,

    Per my research, this feature is the default and currently does not support being disabled. I did a test, and the user has read only permission and can also use copy to/move to feature.
