.NOW LETS LOOK AT AND DEFINE WHAT A COPYRIGHTS MEANS WHEN IT COMES TO WRITTEN WORKS SUCH AS BOOKS
Copyrights means "YOUR RIGHT TO CLAIM OWNERSHIP OF A PARTICULAR PIECE OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY." that is different from the original. It also means that NO ONE ELSE CAN REPRODUCE THAT ORIGINAL WORK, SELL IT, OR DISTRIBUTE IT WITHOUT PERMISSION. Every copyrighted Bible has this fact in their preface (USED BY PERMISSION. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED)
"INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY." = MENTAL PROPERTY OR PROPERTY OF THE MIND
WHOSE MIND ARE WE SUPPOSE TO HAVE IN US, THE MIND OF MAN OR THE MIND OF CHRIST?
ANSWER: 1Corinthians 2:16
For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? BUT WE HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST.
WHICH MEANS THAT ALL OF THE FOLLOWING COPYRIGHTED BIBLES ARE PROTECTED MINDS or the "intellectual property of a man", AND NOT THE MIND OF CHRIST!

NOW MANY OF TODAYS POPULAR MINISTERS CHOOSE TO PREACH FROM COPYRIGHTED BIBLES THINKING IT CONTAINS THE THOUGHTS OR MIND OF GOD
(NKJV-NIV-NLTL-NWT-AMP –AMP-ASV ect…)
BECAUSE OF THEIR ACTIONS
BEHOLD, A WHIRLWIND OF THE LORD GOETH FORTH WITH FURY, even a grievous whirlwind: it shall grievously upon the head of the wicked. The fierce ANGER OF THE LORD shall not return, TIL HE HAVE PERFORMED THE THOUGHTS OF HIS HEART: IN THE LATTER DAYS YE SHALL CONSIDER IT PERFECTLY. JER 30:23-24
GOD TOLD HIS PEOPLE
Yet a small number that escape the sword shall return out of the land of Egypt into the land of Judah, and all the remnant of Judah, that are gone into the land of Egypt to sojourn there, SHALL KNOW WHOSE WORDS SHALL STAND, MINE, OR THEIR'S. JER 44:28
King James Version (KJV)
FOR AS THE RAIN COMETH DOWN, AND THE SNOW FROM HEAVEN, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: SO SHALL MY WORD BE THAT GOETH FORTH OUT OF MY MOUTH: IT SHALL NOT RETURN UNTO ME VOID, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. -Isaiah 55:10-12
