Licensing is a term in which Starfleet personnel engage in branding their starships and objects to prevent illegal copying and plagarism. Many non-Federation members despise the Federation licensing agreements, usually breaking them where the Federation can't reach.

The USS Voyager, while in the Delta Quadrant, submitted 295 reports of copyright infringement acts in the quadrant when it returned to Earth. (VOY: "Postgame")

As of 2368, 47 Klingons have been convicted of illegal plagarism of various Starfleet vessels and property under the GFDL license. This included the:

Copied as the UKS Enterprisa (ICC-I7OI-I>), prosecutor charged for illegal use of Galaxy-class nacelle.
Copied as the USS Voyeur, prosecutor charged for branding a sex barge based on a Federation starship under licensing.
