    absolutely. i posted a request along exactly the same lines less than a
    week ago. the only reason i can see for securing pdfs in this way is to
    stop people tampering then passing on maybe? i'm guessing. copy and
    pasting from pdfs like unicode's documents (the ones i was talking
    about were the v3 book ones) is very useful. why would you want to stop
    people doing that?

    it'd be great if the v4 pdf book doesn't get locked like that.
