It is illegal to copy and distribute entire copies (or substantial portions 
thereof) of copyrighted works (including, but not limited to copyrighted 
Bibles) without the permission of the copyright owners. In most cases with 
copyrighted texts, that involves a signed agreement outlining conditions 
and royalty payment terms. If you don't have that permission in advance, 
then you risk getting sued for damages, lost royalties, and other such 
nasty things.
