Maybe just change the sentence order? I was also slightly confused --
I would think we want to make the permissive statement first.
"BibleTime is released under the GPL license. You can modify and give
away, use or distribute the program by any method you choose with the
sole restriction that you also distribute the corresponding source
code. You can download and use (but not distribute) the program for
personal, private or commercial purposes without restrictions."
Still a little confusing, I think, but clearer than the original in my
eyes. Then again, things usually are to their author. :)
