How can I copy annotations/highlighting from one PDF to an updated version of that PDF?

Question: I've recently moved to almost exclusively electronic books. I prefer to mark up documents with highlighting or annotations as I read them. However, when I get an updated version of a PDF - O'Reilly, for example, will give access to corrected versions of the books you've purchased - I'm then stuck with a marked up older copy and a newer copy, without my notes. Is there any solution of VeryPDF?
