I think the translations should be copy-righted. But I also think the free
ones are more than what we need, i.e. Sword is already offering enough for
both lay and clergy.

I'd agree that NASB is very good. But I don't think much of NIV. Yes it's
easy to read and good for non-believers in that respect. But for anything
more than casual reading I wouldn't recommend it.

However, I'd still vote for us to pursue making these copy-righted
versions somehow available, even NIV.
