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.
