Doesn't Adobe hole the cpoy right to PDF?

If one is going to boycott Adobe, one would need to boycott all PDF
documents. This is going to be difficult, since a lot of the stuff on the
web is in PDF.

	Boycotting Acrobat Reader is easy, since one can use GhostView.
And one can create PDF files by pdflatex. But it will not be easy
boycotting PDF.
