If you had a legitimate license for the text, you would not be
scraping it from the web.  I don't know how to phrase it any simpler
than that.

The fact that you have a license for a text in one electronic format
does not mean that you have a license to convert that text to a
different format.

Technically, that is a copyright infringement.

Are you willing to pay all legal costs for the CrossWire Development
Team if they are subject to either civil or criminal prosecution for
