Would love to find that version of the Book of Mormon. I really want to read it without the chapter headings and footnotes. Would love to listen to it without them as well.

Is there a link you can provide?
Here are a few links to scans of the 1830 edition of the Book of Mormon:

And yet on Nathan000000's site, he posts a version of the D&C content that includes Official Declaration 2. In my view, that's a clear violation of copyright law and the Rights and Use Information for lds.org. But again, Nathan000000 has the responsibility to comply with the law.
As a fun fact, Official Declaration 2 will enter the public domain [see correction that follows].

In my previous post I got the dates mixed up. Official Declaration 2 isn't set to enter the public domain until January 1st, 2074 (assuming copyright law in the United States remains the same until then). :)
