I have a PDF file .. Every thing in it is locked (Selection, copy, printing, ...)

Hi programmer_bmb,
You can open the file in acrobat (full version, not the plain reader) and save it in a different name, specifying the settings (security settings) while you save, to allow print, save, change, etc.
