There are no licensing restrictions for any of the readers. I investigated
this for my company. Adobe's literature indicates that you have to sign a
licensing agreement for the DOS reader. I made a phone call to Adobe about
this and was told that this stipulation no longer exists.

I'm a newcomer to this group. What are the problems with Acrobat? My company
(a software developer) has decided to convert our user documentation files to
PDF. By making the PDFs available to our users via our BBS, we can save a lot
of $ in printing and mailing costs. We have already begun the conversion
process and plan to make an announcement in 3 weeks to our users RE: our new
documentation distribution procedures. Would like to know what problems others
have experienced so we're prepared.
