    It's a protected PDF file. There is a reason that have it disabled.

    Have you contacted the owners to see if you could get access to it?

    one simple way without going crazy would be to hit print screen and paste into a program like Windows Paint. You can then crop/save/edit the image as you please.

    yes, screencap works... But *especially* if it's for a report, I would double-check that you have the copyrights worked out, and give due-credit when required. Many schools have a "no tolerance" policy. Both SOU and CSUF, for example, will expell on a first-offense.

    Yes, this is one time where I will agree with jolly on legality issues. Be sure that you do in fact have permission to use the image in your report, and make sure you cite the source.
