Subject: [sword-devel] God's Word translation permission
My conversation with Rev. Michael Hackbardt went well. He is not only
interested in the idea of making the God's Word translation available for
use with Sword, but excited about it. He wouldn't be releasing the text for
free, but using the encryption mechanism (or one like it) and selling keys.
There are still lots of logistics to work out, but this could be good for
setting a precedent that could make it easier to negotiate with copyright
owners of translations where there is no good free alternative.
