I don't do shows as a business, but I think even trying is bad idea--it won't work and it's just going to alienate some customers. If they want copies, offer them at a reasonable price -- your value add here is a nice label and packaging. If they want to copy it, ignore it. With any luck your imprint on the copies will trigger a new client or two. Yes, technically, you own the copyright on the show and you can object to it, but I think it's a losing proposition.
Personally, I'd never buy from someone who tried that, in fact, I'd make transfer of at least limited rights a condition of the contract in the first place--but I'd also be likely to buy multiple copies up front and maybe come back for more, provided your price was reasonable and there was value in coming back to you.
