That is true insofar as it concerns the text as such. The electronic
version of it remains under a separate copyright as soon as there was
any significant creative act involved.

If someone creates now from a printed copy a new electronic version you
would be on safer ground.

All that aside, Wolfgang, it is pretty clear that we will not use or
redistribute any modules which come from Zefania, so your effort to
create OSIS texts will likely go wasted.

If you have found useful material please show us the _original_ link and
we might do something with it.

We have found on too many occasions that Zefania modules are published
from dubious sources. Right now again, the sourceforge site contains
texts which are ripped off CrossWire, despite being under copyright, so
this does not endear your outfit to us.
