As the previous chapters of Part I have shown, different gradations of exclusivity exist both in the U.S. and in Germany with regard to the rights licensed for the purpose of OMD. Figure 7.1 shows, graphically, how much exclusivity is given for each right of each relevant rightholder in connection with each OMD use. The darker the spot, the more exclusivity exists with regard to the respective right.
