In Australia and New Zealand books published simultaneously in America and Britain were only available from the British publishers until this cozy agreement was deemed uncompetitive. Part of rules allowing parallel importing, although this can cause problems with electronic items under guarantee where (quite fairly?) the authorised importer does not feel obliged to honour the guarantee. And allowing multizone DVD players means that DVDs can be imported by local suppliers like "The Warehouse" and played in New Zealand.
PS: do the American Godine editions of S&A books have any differences apart from the illustrations eg Americanised spelling? Of course some British editions eg Red Fox also have their own or amended illustrations compared with Cape.
