"Mengapa buku ini tidak dirilis oleh mereka?"

Translation:Why is this book not released by them?

I think this needs to be "Why was," not "why is." Or: "Why has the book not been released by them?" (Because "released" must have already happened, whether active or passive, asking why such a thing "is," in the present, doesn't work.)

Does the word “released” have the meaning “published” here?

In this sentence, I think that's a very good alternative to the literal translation 'released'.
