Topic: A-PDF Restrictions Remover

Does anyone have any experience, good or bad, with an application called "A-PDF Restrictions Remover" from a company called Affordable PDF Tools? The purpose of the app is to remove password security and other document restrictions from pdf docs.

Rationale: I regularly avoid printing excess paper by annotating and highlighting journal articles (and pdfs of websites) directly with Adobe Acrobat Professional.

However, some documents have document security enforced whereby I am restricted from commenting (but not printing) so, if I want to annotate/highlight/comment I must print the document out. This messes up my research database where 99%+ of my relevant work is spinning on my harddrive or on my thumb-drive and can, therefore, go anywhere with me. Thus, I want to find some way to remove the document security applied by the document assembler so I can comment on the doc electronically, sans printing.

Is the company reliable? Does the product work?
