How about the Satanic Bible? Is that kosher too?

I may be wrong but I don't think that selling any quotes from the kjv bible by itself is legal.  The usage permission is referring to quotes during a sermon, commentary, or anything related in which the verses themselves are not more than half of the entire content.

PJ - here's the actual text from the new Kings James Version copyright notice:-

To be honest, I think there are probably more than enough Bible readings in the world already and it wouldn't make much of an impact here.


Then again, if you picked a really out there narrator, you might have something. I know I'd pay a few bucks to listen to someone like Harvey Fierstein or 50 Cent or Mel Tillis take Ephesians for a spin...

Briana, that's what I mean, it says that it cannot make up 50% or more of the total work--- selling a single quote here on istock would mean that the verse would be %100 of the total work... according to that, it would seem that you would have to come up with another 50% more of your own words to add to the quote...  ?

Of all the things in the world, the thing I would least be concerned with the copyright of, is the freaking bible. I mean, I can't think of any text older than that. Change a couple words around if it concerns you.

No. Remember ... we are just selling clips ... not final works. In this case its the buyer that would need to keep the 50% rule in mind in determining how the 'final product' they produce will be.

I guess it's the specific translations that are copyrighted.  As long as we read King James or read from original Hebrew, Greek or Aramaic scrolls it shouldn't be a problem.
