The NIV is a copyrighted work, hence the fee. There are several ways
you can purchase a copy of the NIV Bible in plain test, pretty
inexpensively. If you wanted to convert it to a Newton Book, it would
be for personal use only and you would not be able to distribute copies
of it.

Several years back I purchased "The Online Bible" which included the
NIV, KJV plus a whole library of other versions and "public domain"
Christian works (on CD), for the incredible price of $40. Both Windows
and Macintosh versions are available.

He's got a great product so please DO support his efforts:
