OK, even without finding the wiki posts, I did a cursory research.  NTLH 
(Nova Tradução na Linguagem de Hoje, Today’s Language New Translation) is 
held by Sociedade Bíblica Brasileira, who already denied us even the use 
of the out-of-print orthographic revision of the Tradução Brasileira, 
which was only published electronically; and was trying to deny us the 
usage of the original edition of the Tradução Brasileira (‘Traducção 
Brazileira’, old orthography), until they were informed it was already in 
the public domain.

	So I somehow doubt they would suddenly put a modern, best-seller,
dynamic equivalence translation such as NTLH in the public domain.  I 
would love to be proved wrong.

	ACF (Almeida Corrigida e Fiel, Corrected and Faithful [to 
Receptus] Almeida) is by Sociedade Bíblica Trinitariana (Trinitarian 
Bible Society), whom I have just written about Siriarah, asking if they 
have given permission.  Siriarah was also asked about permissions they 
might have obtained, so I am reserving judgement until we get some
