Distributing Adobe(R) Acrobat(R) Reader
You can distribute the free Acrobat Reader software to anyone - inside or outside your company - that needs to view, navigate, and search PDF files.

You may make unlimited copies of the Acrobat Reader 3.0 software and give copies to other persons or entities as long as the copies contain the Electronic End-User License Agreement and the same copyright and other proprietary notices that appear on or in the software. The license agreement, copyright notices, and other notices are contained in the Acrobat Reader installer program, so as long as you do not alter the installer program in any way you will be in compliance with the agreement. You can also see the on-line version of the license agreement.

Adobe currently provides Acrobat Reader products for the following platforms:

  • Macintosh (Acrobat Reader version 3.0)
