Are you sure about the criminal part? I thought the only recourse for copyright violation was for the owner to go after the violator in civil court (to sue).Originally posted by C.H.Mara:
This is illegal and can be proscecuted under criminal law
I wouldn't be so quick to blame the problem as user error. It is very possible to create PDFs that display correctly on one operating system and not on another; not all PDF-generating applications produce correct-to-specification PDF files.Originally posted by mrgoat:
PDF is platform independant and will work in exactly the same way on mac, windows or linux boxes.
It's technically impossible for a PDF to produce different results on different operating systems using the most recent version of the reader software. As far as I know.
There is no such graphics bug in the OS9 or OSX versions of Acrobat.

It is possible that Mr. K & Mr. M experienced a bug in the Macintosh version of Reader.

Can you be more specific about what kind of difficulties they had?Originally posted by mrgoat:
Mr K and Eric Mead seemed to have some difficulties viewing the PDF format that The Digital Gen is produced with.
I'm sorry for coming across as harsh. Since I just completed development of a Troubleshooting training course for a large computer company, I was a little sensitive to quickly pointing to user error with out more info.Originally posted by mrgoat:
