    Usually it's Non-Exclusive rights.

    When I was in a "signed" band, many years ago. Non-Exclusive meant that the record label had the right to release the material for a certain period of time or in a certain part of the world, but we where still permitted to shop it around for potential profits.

    We where still beholden to the contract time-table, but as soon as it was up, the library of material under contract was our's to do as we pleased.

    This sounds a bit different than your situation, but as a writer, being able to offer Non-Exclusive rights, it's kinda like "renting" the material for a limited time or selling it to multiple parties.

    Hope this helps,
