Sorry to hijack this thread, but I am curious about the above.
Is it, in fact, legal for one to use such modules if they create
them themselves for personal use and don't distribute them?

I ask because I have built Sword modules for NIV, NASB, NRSV,
and others, but have set them aside as I am unclear whether
I can use them, even for my personal use.

The one exception being the NRSV, which I received permission
to use, even on my webSWORD site, providing certain restrictions
were maintained.
