Hmm. Provide the LaTex code (scrambled) and place it under the GPL.
Providing source code (LaTex) that contains a few errors (scrambling)

You can certainly release under a "copy, but don't modify" type
license. But that (obviously) isn't free.
But if you release something under a free license, expect people to fix
the scrambling, remove the unsightly 'watermark', etc. Even a
BSD-licensed PDF would have this done to it: Fairly easy to dump the
text, and reformat it, for example.
