Thank you all for the input.

1) I have no reservations about giving away source code. I can upload the 
source code tomorrow,  but it will take me time to read through and become 
familiar with entire GNU GPL (I am a slow reader :)

2) I see there are several projects listed at crosswire.org under the 
umbrella of the sword project. Would it be possible to add this application 
to that ? I have no problems conforming to your rules. (I  am willing to 
make whatever changes necessary) Theoretically, all sword modules should 
work with eBible. Currently I have only made available a few modules 
available for download, since the copyright and distribution policies for 
other modules was unclear to me. Under the umbrella of sword project, users 
of eBible will have access to ALL modules that the sword project has to 

Thanks for your patience while responding my million questions :)
