Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
An easement is an indefinite right to use land and it goes on the deed of the land and cannot be revoked unless the easement is abused or abandoned. License, on the other hand, is where someone pays for the right to use land and that may be revoked at any time in accordance with the agreement.
If there is an easement right here, then you can seek to terminate the easement in court based on the abuse of the easement (failure to pay, violating rules) and it would take a court order to terminate an easement, whereas if there was only a license granted, that could be terminated without court action based on breach of the agreement.
