How to crack password-protected PDF's

When PDF documents are visible but not printable there's an easy workaround when you are using GNU/Linux. Print the pdf to postscript. I've done this several times successfully.

$ pdftops [nietafdrukbarepdf.pdf] out.ps

you can then take that .ps file into osx and open it directly with illustrator if you need to grab a vector element.
