    My sense of consumer rights tells me this company is profit seeking to an extent which is barely legal.
    I am not willing to buy from this kind of company.

    Seeking profit is completely legal, you know the terms of the trial, you have a choice whether or not to accept them.

    Would you be happier with them if they did not provide a trial version at all?  They are giving you a chance to try out their product before buying it. Seems pretty nice of them to me. Delete the trial version and pretend they don't have one. Then maybe you'll think more highly of the company.

    By the way, I tested an alternative to Preview, named Pdf-pen. They have a trial version which will leave a water mark  on your pdf and you cant get rid of that without buying their product. How could I get rid of the Pdf pen watermark ? this is a policy. Is it legal to do so ? I mean, a consumer who just wants to test discovers that his files are watermarked and cant get rid of it.



    Well, if you are a savvy computer user you can figure out a work-a-round for the watermark;  I did  for quite awhile before I finally broke down and bought it.


    That is all I am willing to say on that topic.


    I will add in retrospect, out of all the software I have bought over the years, that $59.95 is the best money I ever spent for my computer work. (Not to mention you can probably find a discount coupon somewhere.)


    And I am still running  the old version 4.7 of PDFpen.


    To each his own and good luck.

    No, the terms did not say that they will pee on my files if I do not buy.

    The terms are clearly spelled out on their site, if you did not read them that is your error, not the developers.
