A digitisation of BDB may indeed be copyrighted. But I don't think that
Chris has specified where he found "BDB on the web". If he found a
digitised version at www.biblecentre.net or any other site which has
simply posted the Logos digitisation, or any other copyrighted
digitisation, this is indeed a breach of copyright. But for all I know
he is using a set of page images, or a non-copyrighted digitisation such
as the one offered by the Online Bible (at least, this is a free
download). If he is using the latter, I'm not surprised that he is not
satisfied, as it is a distorted version of BDB with theologically
