You will want to check to make sure, but I do not believe the actual Book of Mormon scripture verses are under copyright. The chapter headers, footnotes, Bible Dictionary, and Topical Guide information, etc., is under copyright, however.
The link in the previous post is the place to go for an answer.

I'd it's just a reference then I think you're correct - but if he's including the scripture, then he'd have to check with whoever holds the copyright on it. I'm not sure of the copyright status on the BOM.
