  Exclusive right - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Exclusive rights may be granted in property law and intellectual property law as well as in relation to public utilities.
However, an exclusive right is not necessarily absolute, as an easement may allow a certain level of public access to private land.
In property law, exclusive rights have often been the codification of pre-existing social norms with regard to land or chattels.

 [No title]
Justice Roberts stated that exclusive rights are important for the development of modern shopping centers and that the modern approach was to realistically interpret the exclusive right so as to give effect to the intent of the parties.
The exclusive right provision concluded by stating that Gumberg "covenants and agrees that rights similar to the rights herein granted by [Gumberg] to [Penney] are not held by any other tenant or occupant of space within" Quaker Village.
Notice of the maximum term of a lease is important because the term partly defines or circumscribes the rights of a purchaser, mortgagee, or judgment creditor--or, as I have assumed, a tenant to be bound by a co-tenant's restrictive covenant.

 AN EXCLUSIVE RIGHT TO EVOKE
The right of publicity law was applied to look-alikes,8 sound-alikes,9 and a racecar that made people think of its driver;10 state trademark [*PG293]dilution laws had been invoked against marks that resembled other marks without causing confusion;11 and copyright law had been interpreted to protect the “total concept and feel” of creative works.
The critique therefore targets evocation as a right in and of itself, and not as a piece of evidence to be considered in an infringement suit.
It establishes that a right to evoke is not a notion limited to a rogue opinion of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit or to right of publicity law.

 MSN Encarta - Patent
Patent, in law, in its most general sense, a document issued by a government conferring some special right or privilege, usually the exclusive right to an invention, for a limited amount of time.
The first English patent was granted in 1449 by Henry VI to John of Utynam, giving him a monopoly on the making of stained glass for a period of 20 years.
A patent, therefore, is a right to stop competition for a limited period, although it applies only in the country for which it has been granted.

 George, Progress and Poverty, Book VII, Chapter 1: Library of Economics and Liberty
For the right to the produce of labor cannot be enjoyed without the right to the free use of the opportunities offered by nature, and to admit the right of property in these is to deny the right of property in the produce of labor.
The equal right of all men to the use of land is as clear as their equal right to breathe the air—it is a right proclaimed by the fact of their existence.
This is a right which is natural and inalienable; it is a right which vests in every human being as he enters the world, and which during his continuance in the world can be limited only by the equal rights of others.

 Fount of honour - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The fount of honour (Latin: fons honorum) refers to a nation's head of state, who, by virtue of his or her official position, has the exclusive right of conferring legitimate titles of nobility and orders of chivalry to other persons.
During the High Middle Ages, European knights were essentially armoured, mounted warriors; it was common practice for knights to confer knighthoods upon their finest soldiers, who in turn had the right to confer knighthood on others.
After the end of feudalism and the rise of the nation-states, such orders and knighthoods, along with titles of nobility (in the case of monarchies), became the exclusive domain for the monarchs (heads of state) to reward their loyal subjects (citizens) - in other words, the heads of state became their nations' "fountains of honour".

 Hunker v
Assuming the right transferred to appellees in the agreement was a non‑ exclusive right to fox hunt, appellants argue that the trial court erred in determining that any fox hunting by appellant was unreasonable per se under section (8) of the agreement, which provides:
If the right to fox hunt is non‑exclusive, appellants continue, it cannot be unreasonable to allow two competing groups to fox hunt, because a non‑exclusive right to fox hunt clearly contemplates that the owner also has the right to fox hunt.
Because appellees possess a non‑exclusive right to fox hunt, all hunting by appellants cannot be said to be an unreasonable interference.

 Exclusive Right Clauses
Tenants will want a broad exclusive provision, which bars the landlord from allowing any other space at the center to be used for the sale of any of the items or services sold by tenant.
One of the most important aspects of drafting exclusives is defining the term "competing business." Tenant will seek a broad definition to cover all similar potential uses, or at least primary uses, while landlords attempt to limit the definition to a specific, precise list of items.
Although a clear majority of courts have upheld the right of a landlord and tenant to exclude a competing business from a shopping center, both parties should be careful to draft the provision in the least restrictive manner.

 SSRN-From Having Copies to Experiencing Works: the Development of an Access Right in U.S. Copyright Law by Jane Ginsburg
Even if Congress may qualify the right's exclusivity by imposing a variety of compulsory licenses, or outright exemptions, it is one thing to introduce specific and narrow gaps in coverage, quite another to design a system that pervasively fails to afford meaningful exclusivity.
Thus, the exclusive Right today is not only a copy-right, but an access right, and the Essay explores the implications of that claim.
On the contrary, the claim is that the access right is an integral part of copyright, and therefore should be subject to exceptions and limitations analogous to those that constrain copy-right.

 PRH -- Exclusive Right to a Company Name
An exclusive right to a company name is obtained either by having the name entered into the relevant register or by establishing it.
An exclusive right to a company name confers its owner the right to prohibit others in this country from using a company name that could be confused with his company name, unless it can be proved that the said owner will not suffer damage from such use.
An exclusive right based on establishment means that another business operator may not use a confusable company name in the area where the company name has been established (Section 3 of the Company Names Act).

 AN EXCLUSIVE RIGHT TO EVOKE - Notes
In the middle of the last century, however, courts decided that the general right of individuals to be left alone was not well suited to remedying uses of celebrity identities (because the celebrities had deliberately cast themselves into the limelight) and accordingly developed the modern right of publicity.
The court held only that the right of publicity cause of action ‘may be’ pleaded by alleging, inter alia, appropriation of name or likeness, not that the action may be pleaded in only those terms.
When the actors brought a right of publicity claim, the licensee defended on the ground that its license authorized use of the characters and that, because its right to the material sounded in copyright, it preempted the actors’ state right of publicity claim.

 Rights Granted Under Copyright Law (BitLaw)
These exclusive rights are different from the rights given to a person who merely owns a copy of the work.
The rights are not without limit, however, as they are specifically limited by "fair use" and several other specific limitations set forth in the Copyright Act (see the BitLaw discussion on Fair Use for more information on these limitations).
Thus, it would be a violation of the public performance right in a motion picture to rent a video and to show it in a public park or theater without obtaining a license from the copyright holder.

The trial court found for Glass, ruling that she has the “right to use the shore of Lake Huron lying below and lakewards of the natural ordinary high water mark for pedestrian travel.”1 The Goeckels appealed the decision of the trial court.
It is important to note, however, that the court held that this right of exclusive use does not correspond with actual ownership of the land.
The Goeckels, as riparian owners, have the exclusive right to the use and enjoyment of the dry land to the water’s edge.

As far as cinematographic works are concerned, the TRIPS Agreement provides for an impairment test: a Member shall be excepted from according the right in respect of cinematographic works unless such rental has led to widespread copying of such works which is materially impairing the exclusive right of reproduction conferred in that Member on authors.
Computer programs are excluded, under the TRIPS Agreement, from the scope of the right of rental in a single case: if the program is not the essential object of the rental, the obligation to grant a rental right does not apply.
A broad right of rental was favoured by Argentina, Brazil, the European Community and its Member States, Uruguay, and the group of countries of Latin America and the Caribbean.
