Under the Law of God there can be no such thing as copyright or patent, for the Lord God, being the Creator of all things, is the source of all truth. Truth is correlates with actuality. Truth speaks of that which exists. By his nature, the Lord God cannot condone the practice of copyright or patent or any other mechanism for the forcible constraint of the communication of truth.
Hardly any notion can be more absurd or despicable than the notion that it is proper to copyright a translation of the Scripture or any compilation which facilitates study or communication of the Scripture.
