I can copy+paste fine from that PDF. Also note that PDF is an "open" ISO
standard now -- though adobe's extensions such as video (!?!) and 3D
(?!?!?!) are probably not part of that standard.

The formatting prevents large-block cut+paste, but that is more an issue
of design and layout. Living with a print designer, I see this all the
time.
