The entire idea of a pdf file to is maintain the integrity of it, 
otherwise you could take someone else's work, make some edits and claim 
it as your own. If ~you~ composed a document for conversion to pdf, then 
you can likely edit the source document and convert again to pdf, 
because you created it.

Just maybe someone doesn't want you to take their work and dink with it, 
so they published it in pdf format to be released. Just ask the original 
author of the pdf for the source document and get their approval to make 
changes to it. Simple really. I keep ALL of my source documents in a 
directory so I can safely edit them again, to convert to pdf files. But, 
I own them. Evidentially, you don't. :) Ric
