The verb license or grant license means to give permission. The noun licence (British, Indian, Canadian, Australian, New Zealand, Irish, or South African English) or license (American English) refers to that permission as well as to the document recording that permission.
A license may be granted by a party ("licensor") to another party ("licensee") as an element of an agreement between those parties. A shorthand definition of a license is "an authorization (by the licensor) to use the licensed material (by the licensee)."
In particular, a license may be issued by authorities, to allow an activity that would otherwise be forbidden. It may require paying a fee and/or proving a capability. The requirement may also serve to keep the authorities informed on a type of activity, and to give them the opportunity to set conditions and limitations.
A licensor may grant a license under intellectual property laws to authorize a use (such as copying software or using a (patented) invention) to a licensee, sparing the licensee from a claim of infringement brought by the licensor. A license under intellectual property commonly has several components beyond the grant itself, including a term, territory, renewal provisions, and other limitations deemed vital to the licensor.
Term: many licenses are valid for a particular length of time. This protects the licensor should the value of the license increase, or market conditions change. It also preserves enforceability by ensuring that no license extends beyond the term of the agreement.
Territory: a license may stipulate what territory the rights pertain to. For example, a license with a territory limited to "North America" (Mexico/United States/Canada) would not permit a licensee any protection from actions for use in Japan.
A shorthand definition of license is "a promise by the licensor not to sue the licensee." That means without a license any use or exploitation of intellectual property by a third party would amount to copying or infringement. Such copying would be improper and could, by using the legal system, be stopped if the intellectual property owner wanted to do so.
Intellectual property licensing plays a major role in business, academia and broadcasting. Business practices such as franchising, technology transfer, publication and character merchandising entirely depend on the licensing of intellectual property. Land licensing (proprietary licensing) and IP licensing form sub-branches of law born out of the interplay of general laws of contract and specific principles and statutory laws relating to these respective assets.

I'm three months into being an Idaho resident and formerly held a CA CCW. I can't get an Enhanced CCW for another 3 months and I've finally figured out (I think) that I don't technically need a license to carry. I'm going to get one anyway and I assume the license comes in hand if you have an...

Would FFL dealers be unburdened from most of restrictions that were proposed in IP43? Which restrictions would they have still been subject too? For example could FFL holders in Oregon still purchase firearms banned by IP43 and use them for personal use?

And, carry a gun hunting? My son just got his cannabis bust expunged. When can he get a hunting license and carry a gun? It would take some time for the expunged record to reach the fbi in DC, so he'd have to wait to purchase a firearm for some time? Thanks.

So i lost my drivers license and I wanted to buy some beer, so at the checkout I showed the cashier my concealed license, and she was confused, so she then showed it to her libtard manager, and the manager said they dont accept it. I told her this is better than a drivers license.

So, for many years I had a C&R license and collected a small number of items over that time. When it came up for renewal a few years back, I opted to not renew said because:
My interests had shifted to other items.

For a variety of reasons, which I will outline below, I am seriously considering obtaining a dealer license (01) and, once approved, applying for SOT Class 3 (Dealer in Firearms) license. I'm not 100% on the idea as of yet, but I've made some progress on the research. I thought I'd start a...
