    The German Bible Society has claimed through its copyright of the UBS4 Critical Greek Text that it has the right to forbid others from using all derivative works, even though the "Morphed" editions of Greek texts of the NT have been freely available on the net for 10 or more years.

    They have succeeded in shutting down almost all of the websites which use morphed Greek text databases to generate the NT online.

    This has to be one of the most disgraceful and selfish acts of a Bible Society in the history of Bible publishing.
