You could add a digital signature to the files on the CD...if that helps.

You can make an encrypted file with TrueCrypt(http://www.truecrypt.org/) and burn that onto the CD.
Everyone can read and copy it but only with a correct password and/or keyfile can they open the contents.

You can zip the file with password protection, prior the burning it to cd. The file will be copyable but it will contain a password to open it.
