Licensee Law and Legal Definition

A licensee is a person to whom a license is granted. A licensee has the license to use someone else's specified property such as a building, a land or intellectual property. A licensee is privileged to enter or remain on the specified property only by virtue of the possessor's/licensor's consent. The possessor/licensor has a duty to warn the licensee of any dangerous conditions known to the possessor/licensor but unknown to the licensee. The term is also used in the context of a person possessing a license, such as a license to practice a particular profession.
