Kind of a win win when you think about it.

If this didn't happen, there's no way I would have ever heard of this story. Now I know about it. And if I want to read it, I can find scans in about two seconds, which I did. And who knows if I think it's good I may read more of Rosa's stuff. And he may lose out on some royalties from this, but probably a tiny amount since nobody would really be looking for a random Donald Duck comic.

Meanwhile, if there's something Disney's not happy with, they can now distance themselves from it. Anyone who wants to read it still can, and maybe they'll get into Donald Duck comics which I, both a Disney and comic fan, just found out were a thing.

So yeah. People can still read it, more people probably will, and Disney doesn't have to take ownership of anything they don't want to. Good deal for all involved I'd say.

Edit: Read of bit of it. They go back to the old west and there's a mildly racist native american sidekick character. Then there's a zombie who kind of looks like a tribal African caricature. I doubt that anyone would have really noticed or cared if they published it again, but at the same time, I wouldn't be super keen to put my company's name on it. Also the plot is kind of inception, which is a little weird. 

Well, if that's the case, I have some books with Carl Barks stories, and I can remember a bunch of similar cases.

One of my favorites, "Volcano Valley" shows a fictitious country where the citizens are similar to mexican people, and they sleep the entire day to avoid work. Another one "Adventure Down Under" takes place in Australia, and shows a group of natives trying to capture Donald in order to cook him.
