Question of the Day: Xpdf and PDF copy-control: Disable or Not?

Mar 12, 2001, 12:26 (34 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Adam Langley)

Adam Langley asks:

Xpdf is a free (GPLed) PDF reader which respects Adobe's lame "copy-protection" bits in PDFs where the reader refuses to allow printing or copying etc.

I've written a patch to uncripple xpdf, should Debian apply it?
