We need to clarify this.
Long before the creation of this site, someone created an unauthorized College Press NIV Commentary for e-Sword. That commentary has not and will not be distributed from this website
because it is illegal to do so.
College Press has given us permission to use the Old Green Commentaries
, already freely available on their website
. They have not
given us permission to distribute materials they currently sell. They gave us permission to use the Old Green Commentaries because they are out-of-print and no longer sold.
Thus, they have not given "retroactive assent" for the unauthorized College Press NIV Commentary that someone previously made. The College Press NIV commentary is entirely different
than the Old Green Commentaries. College Press Publishing actually publishes a number of books (not just the NIV series), although they may be best known for the NIV series.
To recap: everything College Press produces is copyrighted, sold commercially, and we cannot
distribute it, except
the Old Green Commentaries
