There's actually a print-on-demand -bookshop in Helsinki nowadays. It
feels kind of experimental - they don't do very many books. But it's
there, and they do have some out-of-prints. So there's hope. And you'd
sort of _assume_ that permissions & royalties -related issues would be
easier to clarify than with e-books :-)
