Fantasy Flight ceasing to sell Midnight books could have to do with Wizards of the Coast revoking/modifying the System Trademark License. That's the license that allowed publishers to put the d20 logo on their products. At the end of 2008, many RPG companies had blow-out sales to get rid of as many d20 books as they could, as they couldn't sell them after that date without removing the d20 logo.

Those who sell PDF versions of their books have slowly been removing the d20 logo and language from the source files and making them available for sale again.
