So you should do what louishen said and protect it by releasing it in restricted PDF only.
But you also have to remember that those restricted PDF files can also be unlocked. Just like music/movie piracy, the people who really want to steal the (insert copyright work here) are going to be able to. A lot easier if it's released in ANY digital format.
