Topic: Server Restrictions for Adobe Porducts??
Conf: (P-PDF) Developers, Msg: 59210

How can FDFs and Acrobat forms be 'made to run on a web server' but Acrobat products can not be used on a network server? What is the difference? If I have a form field in a PDF and javascript updates it with the current date when opened, will that not work, or go against any Adobe license agreements, when viewed in Acrobat Reader? (I tested it and it works fine).
Is that what this statement from the Acrobat Reader Integration License means? (IF we integrate the Reader into our app, which we may do so our users do not have to install it)
) Licensee may not use the Acrobat Key to enable any plug-in that performs or that enables any software or hardware to perform any of the following functions:
(i) Removes the menu item that calls up the Acrobat “About Screen” in Adobe Acrobat Reader;
**IN QUESTION>**(ii) Modifies or saves any file (including without limitation PDF (Portable Document Format), FDF (Forms Data Format), or annotation files) or enables another local or remote application or server to do the same; *** provided, however, that the restriction in this
Section 2(a)(ii) shall not apply to Document-Independent Preferences which, for the
purposes of this provision, means data used by the plug-into set options, such as highlight color
or default display font, that apply for all documents;

If I get the date, is the PDF considered modified?!
