English term or phrase: become out of print or off the market
Could you explain what is meant by "off the market" in this context?

Should the translation of the Work become out of print or off the market and remain out of print or off the market for six months after receiving from the Proprietor a request in writing to reprint, then and in that event the licence hereby granted to the Publishers shall revert to the Proprietor without further notice and without prejudice to the Proprietor's claim for damages and/or to any monies paid or then due. For the purposes of this Agreement, the said translation shall be regarded as out of print or off the market should the Publishers' annual statement show a stock fewer than 300 copies.

Not available for buying
Explanation:
"Out of print" means "no longer offered for sale by a publisher" (American Heritage Dictionary). The book in question may still be available for buying in the market.

"Off the market" is the opposite of "on the market," which means "available for buying" (American Heritage Dictionary."
