It's both. It's a Bible originally done by a bunch of scholars mostly
at Dallas for online publication, but is now available in several print
editions. The NET Bible is distinctive in having an enormous number of
notes giving the translators' thinking. As a "little Greek", I find
the notes extremely helpful in helping me to understand the logic
behind the English translations with difficult constructions. It's
somewhere between a study Bible and a good commentary.
IMHO, it's definitely worth getting at least the HTML version (which is
free) and I'm quite excited about the diglot.

they do in discussing problems, there would not be so much evil and
scandal in the world, or such laxity in religious organizations."
