If I have understood things correctly, in England (and the rest of the
UK?) the copyright is owned by the crown and therefore it is the crown
that sets the license. In the rest of the world, the work is in the
public domain. This is, to me, a different thing than local law saying,
for instance, that the Bible as a work is banned.

But don't trust me on this, I am merely speculating.

That which does not kill us makes us stranger
