Warning: Adobe documents now spying on you!
Keep your finger on the pulse. The company behind all this is Canada-based Remote Approach, who advertises their technology as a mechanism to supervise the usage of PDF documents: "We call it Document Distribution Management™. You can call it a way to measure and analyze your real audience and reach - including channels like email and peer to peer, not just people downloading from your web site. We offer a suite of tools and services to help you identify, manage and track your documents in real-time." The company claims this not to be spyware, since according to them the "software retrieves no information from the user's computer and leaves no software behind." Which is a bald-faced lie since they store and share your IP address.
Apparently the company is also working on a feature that would let a company block a document from being read if there's no Internet connection. Another feature in the works would allow tracking on a page-by-page basis.
