The software works well. However the registration process does not work correctly. I paid for the software, but it only let me use it once and then went back into trial mode. The developer has not yet responded to my complaint. Based on other comments on MacUpdate, the developer has been aware of this issue for some time, but has not addressed it. Tis is unacceptable.

Yep, I had the same problem. I paid my money, it worked once, then started printing "DEMO" over everything I dropped on it. I was so annoyed I wrote my own free application. Search for "PDF Unlock" here on MacUpdate. Its not as fancy looking, but its free.

Hi; it is not illegal to modify your PDF data 'for your own use'. It is only illegal to re-publish or re-sell etc. copyrighted PDF contents that you have modified.


Can't see it is at all illegal. What could potentially be illegal is what you turn it to.

However some people are just compulsively anal and set security like they are Mel Gibson in Conspiracy Theory. I turned to this to get at material an ex-employee had made inaccessible without our knowledge.

Besides being "illegal to republish or resell copyrighted PDF contents" there is also the question of cracking passwords for documents circulated for internal consumption within an organization (corporation, university, government agency, etc.) with some kind of malicious intent. God knows I'm not a lawyer,but I wonder if such situations can acquire legal implications.
