This to me seems like a good option, and by registering someone you could then 
give them a "doctored" version of the data including unique information to tie 
that particular view of the data with their session. That unique ID could be in 
a table cell, in the title of the page, as a footer etc. If you found a copy of 
that data with the unique session ID anywhere you could trace it back to a 
date, time, IP address and registered user.

Of course the problem there is that anyone with a bit of HTML skill could 
remove the unique ID from the page. Still, it may help to deter casual copiers.
