I think you might find that Cambridge University Press hold the rights to
the Authorised Version (AV) and not the King James Version. The texts,
although similar, are not the same and I believe the KJV may actually be
in the public domain now. Not 100% sure about that though. It's certainly
freely available - as are a lot of others - from the e-Sword project.
The King James version is indeed public domain. It's this version that my
own !Bible application uses.
Indeed, as soon as CJE Micro's run out of stock of original CDs, I will
probably dump the entire data files on my website so that anyone can use my
!Bible application - see http://www.vigay.com/thirdparty/#bible for more
I have been advised by the Bible Society, and they should know, that
the King James is Crown copyright in perpetuity. I am expecting a full
list of who owns what translation later today.
