Italian term or phrase: licenziante del licenziante
This is from a contract for sports image rights:
l’allenatore della prima LICENZIANTE del LICENZIANTE che nel corso delle Stagioni sportive di durata abbia autorizzato lo stesso LICENZIANTE a far uso, e consentire ai propri sponsors e/o licenziatari di far uso, del suo Nome e della sua Immagine, associati o meno ai segni distintivi dei soggetti che hanno diritto di farne uso

I don't know why they write 'licenziante del licenziante'.
Any ideas? thanks

Explanation:
here's what I think it is:

say a sportswear maunfacturer signs a deal with a football club to use its sportswear, the deal will include the right of the manufacturer to use coverage of its star player, but the star player may have to sign a contract with his club giving permission for the club to in turn allow the manufacturer to use his image, hence he is a licensor of the licensor or I'd say, final licensor.

Yes, it confirms my answer - it means that even if say, Nike signs a deal with Real Madrid (LICENZIANTE), they don\'t have the right to use footage of David Beckham in their advertising, even though he plays for RM, unless they cut a deal with Beckham, or the club cuts a deal with Beckham. Beckham is thus the LICENZIANTE of the LICENZIANTE, presumably because he licenses the club to use his image, which in turn licenses Nike.
