As a beginner student in Greek I was interested when I heard that an online Greek had shut down due to copyright issues.

Basically it seems the German Bible Society shut down the site which was used by heaps of people to spread the Gospel and the Word of God because they owned copyright to the Greek text.

When money rules over proclamation of the Gospel you have to question the heart of the people involved.

So I'm going to add some immaturity to the debate and say the German Bible Society sucks and they should change their mind.

For more mature and indepth analysis of what's going on, see this article by Tim Balyl or comments from a Tassie pastor here
