Hill v Tupper [1863]

Canal company leased land adjoining the canal to H.
Gave him exclusive right to let pleasure boats on the
canal.
T disregarded this privilege by himself letting boats.
H brought action against T for disturbance of his
easement.
Divisional court held right conferred on H by contract
with canal company was a mere license, personal to himself.
The right was not beneficial to the land as land; land
merely required for exploitation of the right.
