Sword is open source software.  Theoretically you can't charge for it.

I got hoodwinked with a software company called Think Well (they're on the 
web).  They offer 4 cd's for the cost of shipping.  Buried in the end user 
agreement, as far out of sight as they can make it, they indicate that only 
two of the CD's are really free.  If you don't return the other two in 30 
days, they ding you twenty five bucks for each CD!

One of the CD's was Sword.  In effect, these guys are selling Sword for 
twenty five bucks.  They're doing the same thing with Open Office.

Isn't this against the rules?  Can something be done to stop them?
