Subclass the standard event type, add a validation handler that checks  
that a new/changed event doesn't overlap with another one in the same  

Perhaps a booking component for Plone, like PloneBooking is better  
suited for what you want to do.

BTW, your problem is better suited to the plone users mailing list  
than this one. And please do not cross post on multiple mailing lists  
(calendar x users ML is removed from my reply).
