    Why Bowditch is locked [Re: Bowditch Edition 2002]

    According to Mr. Tim Doherty of the Maritime Safety Information Division at 
    NIMA, the new electronic version has been locked to prevent unauthorized 
    resales.
    
    Their logic is that Acrobat 5 gives them better protection than Acrobat 4, but 
    it was only necessary to protect five "key" chapters instead of the whole 
    document.
    
    Coming from an electronic pre-press and production background, I disagree with 
    their logic and can see several ways that the entire document can be 
    recreated and "printed" without much fuss...but that's their official 
    position on it, that this was no mistake and the split formats are 
    intentional.
