Licensee definition

A licensee is a person who licenses an artist’s work for a set amount of time.  The license may be negotiated between the licensee and the artist, or the licensee and an artist agent.  The licensee may have various types of legal control over an artist’s artwork.  It is necessary to carefully analyze any license agreement in order that both parties are clear on their legal rights – what for example, the licensee can or cannot do in regard to the use of the artwork.
