The nonlinear normal state diamagnetism reported by Lu Li et al. [Phys. Rev. B 81, 054510 (2010)] is shown to be incompatible with an acclaimed Cooper pairing and vortex liquid above the resistive critical temperature. Instead it is perfectly compatible with the normal state Landau diamagnetism of real-space composed bosons, which describes the nonlinear magnetization curves in less anisotropic cuprates La-Sr-Cu-O (LSCO) and Y-Ba-Cu-O (YBCO) as well as in strongly anisotropic bismuth-based cuprates in the whole range of available magnetic fields.
