A real noobie question - sorry!
- I haven't really been paying much attention to my e-Sword e-mails lately - too much other stuff going on. I know that development and support is no longer going on with Pocket e-Sword but really need to find some modules. What I am mainly looking for is the NIV with commentaries etc. I know that estudysource has it for sale for the PC, but is it available (for a fee) for the PPC?
I don't want to get into a copyright battle, but is it legeal to buy the PC version and convert it to PPC (if possible)?
Blessings and TIA

version of it was created for Pocket e-Sword, if Pocket e-Sword
supported that resource type;

can be purchased after 1 January 2010 from eStudySource;

>but is it legal to buy the PC version and convert it to PPC (if possible)?a) Current ( e-Sword Resource Format Specification 2 ) officially
distributed resources for e-Sword are encrypted. Without the decryption
key, you won't be able to convert them to a usable format;
b) Format shifting is a technical breach of the e-Sword license;
c) Under US Law, EULAs trump copyright law. I don't know what South
African Law says. :( [ The solicitor in South Africa I talked to,
didn't feel qualified to render a legal opinion --- his expertise is in
real property --- referring me instead to a barrister that I haven't
yet talked to. ]
