Clearly the answer to WS users is very simple from a secular company (FL) "buy more."  Over time dissatisfied WS users will either appreciate the secular marketing strategy of FL or move on to free/alternative biblical resources...until those are bought or eliminated from a monopolistic company.  Of course when WS users complain of the nature of the secular company (FL) that is endlessly selling them more products then their attitudes are markedly noted as not having a proper "Christian" attitude toward a secular market exchange.

In the interests of providing perspective, I'm just going to note that Wordsearch's long-term marketing and sales strategy worked so well that their company was sold (to Faithlife) so that Wordsearch wouldn't simply go out of business, leaving all WS users with software and resources that would never be updated and for which there would never be any more support.

Of course, Faithlife will go out of business too, if there's nobody willing to buy more. Happily, there are such people.

Andrew Batishko (Faithlife):

If you bought a "Silver" package now, there's nothing that obligates you to purchase a "Silver" package down the line when a major update occurs. You could choose to buy a larger or smaller package according to which packages contain the specific collection of books, datasets, and features that you are interested in.

Could you explain this in English?   Sounds to me like if I buy a "Silver" package now... and a new update comes out... I would have to buy the "Silver" package all over again?    Please explain. Thanks

Each time a major release comes out, the packages are reconfigured. L8 Silver contained a different set of resources than L9 Silver. When you purchase L9 Silver, you don't pay for any of the resources in the package that you already own. The purchase price also does not include any cost for upgrading to the L9 software. The actual software is free. The price is only for specific books, datasets, and new features.

So, if you buy a Silver package now, you don't need to buy another Silver package with L10 comes out. You can, but only if you are interested in the new books, datasets, and specific features that you don't already own.
