Hi Michael, I do not think we had the "full transition of the ownership" definition in scope for "sell".
If you look at the Vocab comments for "sell" you can see we had "Next Policy is recommended for the third-party" implying that the assigner can specify which rights the assignee can on-sell.

Given this definition of "sell", does this cover your "license"? 

Usually we use the Policy Type to indicate that this is a "license" (our term is "agreement")
If the requirement is "how to express that content is licensed to a party", then we would look at the Policy Type?

Also, do we need a term for the "full transition of ownership" action now?
