We will have our own NASB onsale at the lockman foundation website at some 
point in the (near?) future. And such things may not be as legal as they 
appear at first. Purchasing a key to unlock the OLB NIV may only give you the 
right to use the NIV in the OLB just like purchasing a NIV study bible 
doesn't give you the right to have a large print reference bible without 
purchasing it separately.
