I expect she'll keep them off the market indefinitely (i.e. "more than another 15 years," long past when anyone's really interested) unless a court ruling somewhere establishes that free ebooks of titles that haven't been released as legit ebooks are not copyright infringment because they're not costing the copyright owner anything--they're not lost sales, not allowing someone else financial gain, not competing with sales because the format is too different, and so on.

At least one judge has said she'd be open to arguments of that nature, but no cases have specifically tried it yet.
