I'm going out on a limb here, but I'm guessing the publisher never read the story.

I'm sure it's some twit who read "How to Make 30 Gazillion Dollars selling Public Domain Ebooks for Kindle!" Might even be a copyright issue there, if it offends anyone enough to report it. From Sherlockian.Net:
"In the United States, the only Sherlock Holmes remaining in copyright is The Case Book, which will enter the public domain between 2016 and 2023. A legal challenge that would have invalidated a 1998 extension to the length of copyright — putting Sherlock Holmes into the public domain immediately — was thrown out by the Supreme Court January 15, 2003."
Still, might be worth buying as it is an annotated version. If the annotations display the same level of insight as the cover, it could be really, really funny.
In any event, MobileRead hosts a terrific Omnibus edition of Holmes that beats anything I've seen on Amazon.

To me, it's even funnier that this is one of those repackaged public domain works. Because really, what you are paying for is the annotations.... AND THE COVER ART.
