Default Open Gaming Content in 13 Mann Robots?

I just realized that this book, which was evidently published with a Traveller license, also contains an OGL license. But there doesn't seem to be any declaration of what material is open.

Am I missing something? It looks like the book is, despite the license, 100% closed content.

The declaration is in the OGL itself.

There's nothing in the declaration that says what is OGL.

The declaration of product identity is a required part of the OGL declaration.

The standard "unmodified" OGL 1.0a §1e reads:
Quote:
(e) "Product Identity" means product and product line names, logos and identifying marks including trade dress; artifacts; creatures characters; stories, storylines, plots, thematic elements, dialogue, incidents, language, artwork, symbols, designs, depictions, likenesses, formats, poses, concepts, themes and graphic, photographic and other visual or audio representations; names and descriptions of characters, spells, enchantments, personalities, teams, personas, likenesses and special abilities; places, locations, environments, creatures, equipment, magical or supernatural abilities or effects, logos, symbols, or graphic designs; and any other trademark or registered trademark clearly identified as Product identity by the owner of the Product Identity, and which specifically excludes the Open Game Content;
Anything that isn't that nor trademark is open content. If they've added PI themselves, then it MUST be added either as §16 or it must be added in §1e.
