you need to add value to your pages where the links are, if all your doing is coping the content then your basically just a scrapper site (copying other peoples content) Google do target these type of sites and take them out the index. To avoid that you have to provide a lot more than just displaying a PDF, else why would the user not go to the original source ? you are offering nothing new / different.

I dont think pdf files duplicate content can be a much issue, as Google is more serious about web pages in my opinion, and google is search engine for web pages and content, whereas pdf file is a kind of content, just like videos, and images, which we can use on different pages many times, that will not be considered as duplicate content, it is just my personal opinion, you may not agree with me.
