Protecting Conditional formatting only

I have a worksheet that can be accessed via password by multiple users. I need to allow these users to enter data, but I want to prevent them from overriding the conditional formats in the cells. Each row is color-coded, so if they drag info from one row to another or copy & paste, they screw up my beautiful color system. Can I protect the conditional formats but still allow data entry?

Repeat Last Command
Pressing F4 adds dollar signs when editing a formula. When not editing, F4 repeats last command.

I don't think there is a simple way to do this.

One way is to disable copy/cut/pasting in the worksheet thru VBA - try to search the archives.
