>Because the readers listen to their favorite authors, and the authors toe the line of the publishers, because they want to get paid and because they would otherwise have problems at contract signing time. There are very few authors who are big enough that they can dictate terms to the publishers, and so far, none of them have loudly argued against the existing international setup. Or at least none that I heard.
Times are changing. With self-publishing and the internet for 
distribution, some authors are striking out on their own.
