Thanks for your convincing answer. It is a sad story

Unfortunately this is the standard answer to anybody writing into
410 West Street, NY ...

Probably somebody told you "We will come back to you", which is the
standard answer for phone calls, a promise which is rarely kept.

The "amicable solution" could habe been to propose: "when you put
something from our printed books on your website, put a link to our
webshop on the page so that people can order the printed version right
away. We will forward the order to one of our bookshops or a
distributor suited for the country of the purchaser."
That is what I will propose to anybody approaching me for any such
problems (re www.mlwerke.de).

Das war ein Schuß ins Knie.
