Bug#447712: Package could be non-free in the United Kingdom

Package: bible-kjv-text
Severity: normal


I was browsing Wikipedia after visiting a special exibition about the
history of the Bible in the United Kingdom and I stumbled on this:


  "The terms of the letters patent prohibit those other than the
  holders, or those authorized by the holders from printing, publishing
  or importing the Authorized Version into the United Kingdom."

Since I'm not at all familiar with the legacy of copyright laws around
the British Royal Family, I'm setting the severity to normal, using
'could' in the subject and Cc-ing debian-devel.  But I thought the issue
was worth raising.
