Can I use Sticky Notes in Adobe Reader

I have Acrobat and Adobe Reader - free versions. Can I use sticky notes/comments in these? I would like to edit and comment on a PDF I received.

Adobe Reader X provides use of sticky notes and highlight comment annotations "out of the box". For Adobe Reader version prior to "X" the PDF must first be "Reader enabled" by Acrobat Pro.

Of course Acrobat provides the full Comment / Markup annotation inventory.

With that said, if a PDF has security applied that precludes use of annotations then they won't be available for use on such a PDF.
