Right, that's in the UK (and Europe), and it looks like they may have
failed :).  But in the US, it's already more than 50 years (or so I gathered
from the articles in the British press about the issue, I'm certainly
no expert on the matter).

I just thought it might be a cause for concern, and if we're not completely
sure about it, it should be possible to find or create an alternative with
a known license which fills whatever niche this movie is testing.
