Wiktionary

In economics, rivalry is a characteristic of a good. Rivalrous goods are those which can be consumed by only one person at the same time -- for example, a candy bar or a suit; a non-rivalrous good may be provided to more consumers at a very low marginal cost for each additional consumer.

Common goods are those which are rivalrous in consumption but non-excludable.
