Well, it could cause me to abandon the line. I won't do business with Rupert Murdoch.
Dependent how good your German is, you could read the ST novels from the German publisher CrossCult.
Who surely pays Pocket (and its owners) and CBS to be allowed to publish them?
Does CultCross pay S&S to print German translations? Or does CC only pay CBS?

'Cos S&S doesn't retain any copyright to the books. It could be like the situation where IDW was reprinting Trek comics originally from DC Comics, because DC didn't retain any rights to those comics after their contract with Paramount expired.
