The Knox Bible
Trans. Msgr. Ronald Knox
Baronius Press (republication)
It seems the Catholic Archdiocese of England and Wales must be contacted to secure electronic publishing rights.
I also left a note about "Divine Intimacy" English translation by the Discalced Carmelites of Boston, 61 Mt Pleasant Ave, Roxbury, MA 02119, that it seems the license is held by Monastero S. Giuseppe – Carmelitane Scalze, Roma, Italia. I suggest finding an employee fluent in Italian to communicate with them as Italian is a language full of idioms which makes communication difficult.
Ronald Tadena commented
Barronius Press most certainly does not hold the international copyright. I recall when the Barronius Press edition came out that press releases I read said they had to obtain permission from The Catholic Archdiocese of England & Wales to print it. So I was under the impression that the Archdiocese held the copyright. I also have an older edition of the Knox Bible from England that has MacMillan and Company Limited and Burns & Oates Limited listed as publishers, this edition was from 1966. Hope that sheds some light!
Perhaps the publisher does not own the full rights. I've had people not respond, I've eventually had to write, then write with certified mail, return receipt, finally I was told that the person in charge had died, but I did get an answer, but no action (yet). I may have to drive down and visit in person. See if you can find out who holds the international rights.
Just a quick update on the Knox Bible. The publisher has yet to respond to several attempts to license. We'll keep trying, but I just wanted to provide a quick update.

An excellent translation.
Indeed. The Knox Bible is an accomplishment in both bible translation and English literature.
