Copying Products/Catalogs



I have a working catalog and products for region A.  An author can manually add content directly to the product page generated from the catalog rollout. 

Region B wants to use region A's product pages/catalog and product data as a starting point for their catalog.  I've copied region A's product data and generated catalog pages to folders for region B, and updated all references to region A in the product pages/catalog properties to region B (e.g. cq:productMaster, productData), but on the first rollout, all manually added content gets deleted and I'm left with just the data pulled in from the product data.

Is it possible to copy the product data, and generated product pages from region A for region B?  Or will region B have to manually add in content from region A?
