Doesn't look that way. The properties show 18 A4 pages, rather than 36
I tried some tools, but they complain that it's encrypted.
"Evince" manages to display it OK, and allows you to select and copy the
text, but the formatting is a mess.
A professional 'pirate' would just print-to-file, run OCR, and save
it as HTML. A casual pirate can just share the original file. I don't see
the point in trying to DRM it.
Oh well, at least I can view it in Linux, and on my N800 (Linux PDA
thingy). Having to pan about is a bit annoying though.
