But the cost of printing couldn't possibly hit 5 dollars per piece when they do it in bulk right?

@Shan I do see where you are coming from, but this question specifically tackles the legality issue and ignores the "lose face" issue.

Take a look at the edit. To be clear, in my example it is not simply line-by-line rewriting. Paragraphs are removed.. paragraphs are added.. the paragraphs are so different no one could find a similar paragraph at all. Even the chapters are different. The entire expression is different beyond recognition. But the entire idea is the same. This is the level I'm describing, the corner-case I'm talking about.

Yes I was talking about having identical incidents (identical ideas) but the dialogues (words) would all be different. Please keep in mind that I'm using an example to demonstrate my point, and I'm not actually trying to plagiarise someone else's work.
