If you have any particular modules you wish to distribute, then I
would suggest contacting the copyright holders directly.  Crossway in
particular are fairly liberal with giving permissions for the ESV
(they rejected our request to distribute BPBible with it because they
would prefer Crosswire to do so, but the iPhone is a different
environment, so YMMV).
