    By applying the patch, you refuse to honour the document authors licensing agreements. They write a document, and release it onto the net for you to read, but not to print and or copy, that’s the condition under which they release the document. If you wish to something else, you have to strike a deal with the author himself.

    IANAL. But this argument seems to ignore “Fair Use”. In the Yoo Ess, one is allowed to use portions of a copyrighted work without the permission of the author, as long as such use follows the Fair Use guidelines of the statute.

    If a person wants to print out a copy of a PDF, seems like they should be able to.

    Personally, I havn’t seen this kind of protection on PDF files, so I don’t really care.
