Adobe Acrobat Reader is a free program to let you view Portable Document Files (PDFs) created by Adobe Acrobat and other desktop publishing programs. PDFs were created to protect information from being altered and were once considered a secure way to share information under copyright or otherwise protected as proprietary information. Technology and public demand have advanced PDF development to include the ability to copy and paste images from Adobe Acrobat Documents.
