[sword-devel] Copyrights and cash

I think the whole point of sword that its free
btw, all the bibles that are currently under copyright are going to be made
redundant in the next 5 years anyway, because a new critical edition of the
Hebrew Scriptures is being made.
Secondly, I was thinking that instead of making it free I was thinking of
disabling copy and paste features on locked modules. I think it might be a
good proposal of providing a free translation while restricting copying.
Copyright laws all allow for fair use (which means anyone can (with
permission) create a module that only displays a maximum of say a chapter of
a book, for example. I say why not disallow the user the ability to copy
and paste...and encyrpt the locked module. I mean how many websites offer
the boos copyrighted. anyone can, with enough time, copy the entire bible
that they have made online.
