Export control law
A licensee is "[t]he person to whom a license has been issued by BIS."
A licensee is one who is entitled by a license agreement to acquire or exercise certain rights in or to some property (usually intellectual property) owned or controlled by a licensor. A licensee obtains no ownership rights in the property that he or she receives under the contract.
