My review will be published soon, so I'll just say that he packs a
well-loaded argument. Comprehensively researched, and a pleasure to
read. Seems a great deal of effort to go to, to demonstrate that S.'s
plays are literature, but you know how it is....

An answer somewhat askant to your question, but still an answer, I
believe: Erne makes the strong point supported by Blayney et al. that an
entry in the stationer's register didn't just protect a given text. It
protected the stationer's member from *any* similar work which might
interfere with sales. Erne uses this to argue that every pre-1603
Shakespeare play that was not so enjoined (or otherwise impeded) was, in
fact, published.
