The German publisher is a much smaller concern, although CBS Consumer Products would still have to approve the art.
Which resulted in a last minute change for their latest TOS release Der Friedensstifter (Mudd in your Eye). The original draft had Harry Mudd on the Cover alongside Kirk, but at the end of December, just one month before the release date Pocket (I guess in cooperation with CBS) informed them that they had to redo the cover since they had no rights to Roger C. Carmel's likeliness. In the end they pretty much just resized Kirk's image to make up for the loss of Mudd.

You can see the original draft with Mudd here

and the final version without Mudd here.
