A license is a contractual right to do something on a property,

whereas a lease is a property interest that includes possession of

the property, often containing the right to sub-license specified

uses of the property.


For example, you could lease a warehouse from someone and have a

license to use it as a public storage facility, provided you paid a

percentage of the generated income to the landlord.
