It's not an issue where you got the text. The NA/U text rights are
owned by the German Bible Society. The CCAT text we originally used was
"for scholarly use". There was no clause that allowed us to
redistribute the text from our site as a SWORD module. I would guess
that these other sites are not fully conforming to the wishes of the
German Bible Society.

Thanks, it was alot of work. The producers of the LXXM data are aware
of our project and we're hoping to get permission granted soon for
redistribution. The text still needs work if you'd like to clean it up.
All the tools we used to process the original data files are checked
in to our source repository at:
https://crosswire.org/svn/sword-tools/trunk/modules/lxxm/ I can give
you some more pointers to get you started if you need help and would
like to share in this work.
