Another Book Bites the Dust

Yet another German book has been withdrawn from the market after someone portrayed (or perhaps allegedly portrayed) in it threatened to sue.  In this case, the book is Havemann, a family chronicle by Florian Havemann.  The publisher signed an agreement to withdraw the book, and has asked booksellers to send back unsold copies.

In addition to the legal questions all this raises, what about the environmental ones?  The book was almost 1,000 pages long, after all.  What happens to all that paper?
