Just my two cents on licensing...

I'm so frustrated by the fact that "God's Word" is licensed at all. I understand that money had to be involved with the translating/publishing process, but the fact texts like NIV is "licensed" means profit. I'm beginning to sway away from such versions and translations and moving towards public domain texts. I'm doing the same with Windows to Linux. I've even paid for a distribution just because of the freedoms in the GNU GPL license.

Anyway, as I said, it's just my two cents. Thanks for listening to my little rant :-)

God Bless <><
