Can I create a PDF of a textbook if I don't sell or share it?

First, check the web site it is on. I have seen textbooks where the site gives permission for it to be copied. Glencoe has some textbooks set up like this. If you are talking about a pirated copy, where the web site did not have permission to post it in the first place, it’s legal to read it online, but if you download or print it you will be infringing on copyright. If you do it just for your own use, and don’t share your copy with anyone, though, no one is going to bother you. If you purchased or downloaded a legitimate copy, printing it out in a different format just so you can read it is not an issue.

PDF documents can be cumbersome to edit, especially when you need to change the text or sign a form. However, working with PDFs is made beyond-easy and highly productive with the right tool.

How to Create PDF with minimal effort on your side:

  1. Add the document you want to edit — choose any convenient way to do so.
  2. Type, replace, or delete text anywhere in your PDF.
  3. Improve your text’s clarity by annotating it: add sticky notes, comments, or text blogs; black out or highlight the text.
  4. Add fillable fields (name, date, signature, formulas, etc.) to collect information or signatures from the receiving parties quickly.
  5. Assign each field to a specific recipient and set the filling order as you Create PDF.
  6. Prevent third parties from claiming credit for your document by adding a watermark.
  7. Password-protect your PDF with sensitive information.
  8. Notarize documents online or submit your reports.
  9. Save the completed document in any format you need.

The solution offers a vast space for experiments. Give it a try now and see for yourself. Create PDF with ease and take advantage of the whole suite of editing features.

Create PDF: All You Need to Know

That is the “law” I am talking about. Once you have your own copy of A Lesson in Nineteen Eighty-Four, that is it. If I had a “Law” about stealing, the next one I would tell you about would be on the “law” of “moral rights.” This is a strange concept to me. I don’t really understand it either. A moral right is something that you really need that is a prerequisite to acting in a certain way. If you have a moral right to something, you cannot violate it unless you can do it without harming yourself or anyone else. You would not be able to do it unless you needed your morals to be in order to keep from hurting others. Do you really think the guy in the wheelchair could hurt his own legs? What if he had to keep his legs on.
