protect downloaded files we've sold

We are building an online store where users can download files for their use.  I'd like to keep those files somewhat editable so they can customize but was wondering if there's anything out there that can prevent that file from being redistributed.

I realize this is probably part of a broader debate but since I'm a newbie, I was curious.

If someone has the file then there is nothing to stop them giving to anyone else.
What type of files are we talking about?

Depending on budget, you could look into Microsoft Rights Management Server.

For pdf's you may want to have a read thru this and see if it is something you can/want do.
