I'd personally like to see Terenkov _test_ his theory, using, say, a
downloaded copy of Adobe Acrobat Reader for which he sets up an
unauthorised redistribution site.  We then bring this to the attention
of Adobe Legal, which should give the man's hypothesis a suitably
vigourous validation.

I understand that Adobe Legal are extremely helpful in such matters.
