You may be right in Europe, in the USA if I hold the copyright I may grant several non-exclusive licenses under different terms. It's not even unusual. With commercial software I may sell a right to use quantity one to an end user, a site or company license to a large organization, and a right to duplicate and resell to another (if I trust them to pay royalties). And I might grant a free right to use to a charity if I was a nice person.
