So Pocket decided on its own to yank the books? They weren't ordered to do so by JJ Abrams/Bad Robot? I don't know if that's any better...
I don't know if Bad Robot would be capable of "ordering" a publisher owned by CBS to cancel books based on a movie owned by CBS and copyrighted by Paramount. They'd have a say in the decision, I'm sure, but not a unilateral one. It's possible that Pocket made the decision after discussions with Bad Robot, Paramount, and CBS, that it was a resolution mutually arrived at. But we don't really know how or why the decision was made, so it's best not to jump to conclusions.
