The text used at universalis isn't an approved translation, nor is it complete. They commissioned their own for use online, probably because they couldn't secure the rights from the Grail, ICEL, et. al. They also don't have antiphons, hymnary, or psalm-prayers. The best out there is at ebreviary.com. It's the complete text of the US-approved version, but you can only get it daily. It's a yearly subscription fee of something like $50 for personal use.

Now that I think about it, you may be right about copyrights from the Libreria Editrice Vaticana on Latin texts. In my research after reading your post, the LEV does maintain copyrights on Latin texts, but not for pecuniary interests (as do most publishing houses) but for assurance that the text isn't altered or edited, something really important given the nature of the texts.
