The most attractive feature of PDF, to businesses, has always been that 
it reproduces the print layout accurately on screen.  That is considered 
very desirable, even if it conflicts with accessibility.

The other attractive feature is that it provides strong copy protection 
than web technologies, with often rely on scripting to make copying 
difficult for unskilled users.
