      I really, really appreciate the accident reports. However, I am frustrated
      by the fact that the report is distributed in Acrobat PDF format with
      *printing restrictions*. I want to read the entire 50-60+ page report, but
      not on my screen, so the service is working against itself in terms of
      maximizing the benefit of the report to the community. Is there anything
      that can be done about this? Why is it copyrighted material with
      restriction on the reproduction? I care deeply about this sport and value
      tremendously the effort that is put into the accident report. I just want
      to see the benefit of the report maximized...
