Profit a Prendre

[French, Right of taking.] The right of persons to share in the land owned by another.

A profit a prendre enables a person to take part of the soil or produce of land that someone else owns. It is a right to take from the land, as in the mining of minerals and is, therefore, distinguishable from an EASEMENT, which is a nonpossessory interest in land generally giving a person a right of way on the property of another.
