Re: Already paid.

A format shift is still illegal if there is a contract out for the destination format ALREADY. And there is: the PRINT and EBOOK contracts: otherwise, they wouldn't be available on Amazon. If Amazon wishes to provide subtitles, they need to negotiate with the holder of the eBook rights and negotiate first.
