Hello, this is not directly Logos-related, but I think this forum would have many experts on questions like this one.

One of our friends made a Russian interlinear New Testament based on NA26 translation.  He wants to go public with an online interface and also sell mobile apps which would contain his work.  Does he have to license NA26 for usage?

Thanks in advance for your help.

If the text of the NA26 is included (which it would be) he at least needs permission from the copyright owner, The United Bible Societies.

If pursuing the NA proves unworkable, your friends might want to check out the SBLGNT as the Greek text basis: http://sblgnt.com ; note particularly the license: http://sblgnt.com/license/

It differs from the NA26/7 text in around 540 places.
