Many used book dealers price clip books. Normally a used book, which looks 
new, is priced at about 60% of the list price. The reason that it is price 
clipped is that the dealer might price the book at 80% of the list price. The 
other reason prices are clipped by used book dealers is that if the book is 
several years old and out of print the original price is irrelevant, but 
customers protest if they see that the current selling price is higher than 
the original price of the book. This applies to all used books and not 
specifically ML. However, I suspect price clips on ML are done for similar 
reasons.
