Luckily, copyright is a field where differences between nations are fairly
unimportant.  The main differences are about length of copyright, the
fair use/fair dealing provisions, and moral rights for authors of
non-visual works.

You are of course right that no permission is needed to reference.

IANAL, TINLA.
