Definition - What does Proprietor mean?

Generally speaking, a proprietor refers to a person that owns something. In order for a person to be a proprietor, what they own is not as important as the fact that they own it. However, the term proprietor is generally used in more of a business sense rather than a personal sense.

Justipedia explains Proprietor

Because the term proprietor is used in more of a business sense, it generally means that a person owns something of business value—a company, a trademark, licensing, a formula, etc. However, a proprietor is someone who is the sole owner of their own company. A sole proprietorship is the standard name for a company that is owned by a single individual.
