I think it may be different here in the UK - I've an idea that the RSV is 
under British copyright, and (I think) our copyright expires after fifty years 
- technically, fifty years after the death of the author - in the case of a 
publication written by an individual.  I expect it is different for a translation 
copyright.  It needs checking out, but if I'm right, then we ought to be OK 
next year, if we have the 1952 version.
