[sword-devel] Copyrighting The Bible?

There has been something that has gotten under my skin quite a bit 
recently. It is the tendency of modern translators to copyright The Bible. 
Is that their right? To change slightly, for example, the KJV, call it the 
MKJV, and copyright it? Who wrote it anyway? Did they, or did God? I'm 
aware of the legal position on translation, of course, but it still 
disgusts me that people can do that.
