Can a write-protected PDF that cannot be copy and pasted (thus preventing people from stealing your content) be indexed/crawled by Google? I’m not talking about a pdf with images of text on it, just plain text that cannot be copied and pasted.

It all depends if you're going to make your PDF accessible to crawlers. Example. If the file or directory is password protected and the crawler can't read the file, it won't index it. Another option is to make the directory folder as no-index in robots.txt You can also use X-Robots-Tag. noindex adding this snippet to you .htaccess file or httpd.conf Header set X-Robots-Tag "noindex, nofollow"
