What is not going on? That it is zero for paper books and non-zero for ebooks is what leads to this situation. If they had been the same then it had not been a problem.

However, since all this suggests the publishers can get better terms by going indie and taking the KDP T&C, why don't they do just that ? Because it's NOT TRUE perhaps.
What do you mean by better terms? The problem is that not using Amazon will losse you to much customers. And it would also make a book fail and the authors career fail. It is irresponsible to the author to sell less copies then they can sell.
