Recently I printed out a Canon camera User Manual which in the process printed the word 'Copy' across the document although this didn't appear in the monitor displayed document.
Surely, these examples (and others) are the sole purpose of the security settings and not as to whether it can be

It's not a question of viewing but printing that the original poster reported as a problem. Security setting in Adobe's Acrobat can stop you printing a document, hence the blank pages the original poster found whilst trying to print.
