Print PDF Documents That Disable Printing

I received a question of how to print a PDF that does not allow you to print it. This worked for me:

  1. Download and install Ghostscript.
  2. Download, install and run GSView.
  3. Open GSView and open the PDF document you can’t print.
  4. File –> Print like you normally would.
