This question establishes that most copyrighted translations have a fair use clause allowing for up to 500 verses to be used.
This question further clarifies that the 500 word limit is "reset" each week in the case of a pastor projecting verses onto a screen in a sermon.
Well, what about a program or app that makes available daily readings (always conforming to the fair use clause in a given day) but which, over the course of the year will show more than 500 verses total. Is it reset each day? This feels like a use of the translation in good faith, but I don't know how a lawyer representing a profit-seeking company would see it.
Depending on how the program is written, that could further by complicated if the program:
- stores the entire translation in a database, or
- allows users to access "daily readings" from days other than today
What do you think?
