The question came from a lawyer who was not aware of the agreement
between Elsevier and Dominic. Once I passed on the information that
Dominic had provided to me (with regards to the rights of the book),
and he verified it, he agreed that it was a misunderstanding (on his
part) and apologized.

Look at the bright side: now we have the certainty that we are not
violating anyone's rights, and it is documented for the record.
