I was listening to the API podcast where Rob & Matt mentioned copyrighted Bible translations, and I totally agree. Why should the Bible be copyright?
Why don't we (and by 'we' I mean someone else ;) setup a Wikipedia-style website that let's people translate the Bible freely, with possibly an API to integrate it into other software (like open source Bible study tools, CMS's, etc.)? Have a free-to-use-and-edit Bible translation that will not only be current in today's culture, but can stay current and evolve over time (not the meaning, but the wording and the way it's explained).
It would, of course, have to be monitored, and there's always going to be people that disagree on the interpretation of passages, but perhaps there could be a system in place where users can view the different interpretations, like revisions...
Just some thoughts I had when listening to the guys talk about it. What do you think?
