permission

in the English law of PRESCRIPTION, at common law any consent or agreement by the servient owners, whether oral or written, rendered the user a precarious possession; it made no difference how long ago the permission was given provided that the use was enjoyed under it and not under a claim to use as of right. Under the Prescription Act, this rule now applies to the shorter periods only (20 years for easements, 30 years for profits) but not to the longer periods (40 years for easements, 60 years for profits) where permission had to be given by deed to be effective.

PERMISSION. A license to do a thing; an authority to do an act which without such authority would have been unlawful. A permission differs from a law, it is a cheek upon the operations of the law.
     2. Permissions are express or implied. 1. Express permissions derogate from something which before was forbidden, and may operate in favor of one or more persons, or for the performance of one or more acts, or for a longer or shorter time. 2. Implied, are those, which arise from the fact that the law has not forbidden the act to be done. 3. But although permissions do not operate as laws, in respect of those persons in whose favor they are granted; yet they are laws as to others. See License.
