On the bottom of each office: "Used with permission by Surgeworks, Inc for the Divine Office Catholic Ministry."
Both of these use the correct translation, and as far as one can tell from the outside, they are legal. No, they're not copies of the entire book, but you only need it day by day anyways in 95% of cases.
Just because something's copyrighted doesn't mean permission can't be granted, especially if it is for the good of the faithful, which having the office on one's phone certainly is.
You are right about divineoffice.org, they specifically mention the ICEL copyright so they are using the same text.
iBreviary I am not so sure. There was a one-word discrepancy in a Scripture reading in the common I checked, and also in the Vespers for tomorrow, Monday Week I. It looks like iBreviary is using a similar but not exact copy of the ICEL texts. I would be wary of them as they also appear not to be based in the U.S., but in Italy; they may not be subject to exactly the same copyright laws and penalties, which could explain why they are still functioning.
You are correct that licenses can be granted, and this is obviously the case for divineoffice.org, so I will happily recommend that site as I have seen others doing.
