Perhaps "licensed copy"? A quick check of a few Swedish standard form
contracts, dealing with copyright matters, reveals that the term "work"
is only used when all economic rights to a works are transferred from
the author to for example a publisher. The term "licensed copy" is used
when the license only applies to the a specific copy of a work.

Yes of course. Collecting societies does this all the time. If I would
own a restaurant I would have to pay a collecting society for playing
music to entertain my guests and that license wouldn't be included with
any of the CD's that I bought.
