4. Only  one dollar to Wikimedia per copy? That's a measly 5% royalty. Who

While no one has commented on the initial print run, there are certainly  
initial production costs that have to be covered, and these can be steep  
(copyediting, fact checking, plates, separations, printing, etc.). For a  first run 
book which they can ostensibly grab for free, this is actually pretty  generous.
