Both the U.S. and the U.K. have laws which extend the international
copyright laws regarding the period until expiraration of an original
literary work (among other things) from 50 years until 70 years. In the
U.S., the extention was enacted in1978 and includes creators who died prior
to 1978. They were enacted to encourage R&D and competition among
industries. International copyright laws are overruled by local copyright
laws. I assume Crowley's works were, for the most part, copyrighted in the
U.K.. However, there may not be any infringement of copyright if it occurs
outisde such jurisdiction which may include persons, publishers, and
