Why doesn't Logos give you the ability to read the copyright translation of Bibles that you want to?  For instance, the 2011 NIV has just been updated, but I don't necessarily want to use the 2011.  I would like to use the 1984.

Scott,

its Zondervan who have asked Logos to stop selling it, I would contact them.

You may be able to pickup a copy on the net, think it may have been part of concordia study bible disc, but it may have been updated to 2011..

Scott - 

The NIV84 is still available through Logos, but as was mentioned, Zondervan asked that it be pulled from Base Packages. You can buy it through the following link:

That's kinda backwards.  You have to pay for the things that you already had, and keep the things that you didn't ask for...?  HA!

I don't understand your reasoning. You have to pay for things that you want in addition to the base package. People that had NIV 84 (through a pre-KF base package) don't lose it and don't need to pay extra - through the package upgrade they received NIV 2011 in addition to what they had - some for free.

Basically, Logos puts together the base packages out of different concerns which include the probable interest of a number of customers as well as the availabilty of packagable licences. Thus every user with a base package (or any set of multiple resources) is likely to have things he/she didn't ask for - nobody forces you to use those, you may even "hide" them (i.e. delete them from your PC).

Scott - 

If you had it before, you should have it now. If you didn't have it then, you can buy it now. What's funny about that?
