I agree that workshop "cloning" is a real issue. More than once a workshop/safari has suddenly appeared on the same dates I use at the lodge next door, etc.
However I don't think we'll get any further trying to protect the information once its out there than Galen did trying to copyright his tripod position.
What might be fruitful would be a chat about the types of information that is published publically vs. mailed only to participants, what is online vs. print, etc. I know I've gotten a little more cautious about putting too many details on public web pages with a lot of the little details going out as watermarked PDFs, for example.--David Cardinal
