  Description     : King James Version with Strongs Numbers and Morphology

This is the King James Version of the Holy Bible (also known as the
Authorized Version) with embedded Strong's Numbers. The rights to
the base text are held by the Crown of England.

What "rights" are you speaking about? The text certainly is far too
old for any copyright to hold and you yourself tag it as "public
domain". So what "right" is being spoken of here?


Please don't CC submit@bugs.debian.org when replying to a bug.

Based on my understanding [0], the Crown of England maintains the perogative to
authorize printings of the KJV text in Great Britain.  It is in the public
domain everywhere else.
