Protecting the master copy of an editable pdf

I am trying to create an editable pdf for my work, the goal is to be able to let my coworkers open, and use the file (filling out the editable sections of the pdf) and then NOT let them save over the master copy with all of their details filled out. Is there any way to allow anyone to access and fill out the form without allowing them to save over the master copy?? I'm obviously happy for them to be able to save the file to a different location as long as when the next person opens the master file it is still clear of contents
