Din dicționarul Jargon File (4.3.1, 29 Jun 2001) :

  loss n. Something (not a person) that loses; a situation in which
     something is losing. Emphatic forms include `moby loss', and `total
     loss', `complete loss'. Common interjections are "What a loss!" and
     "What a moby loss!" Note that `moby loss' is OK even though **`moby
     loser' is not used; applied to an abstract noun, moby is simply a
     magnifier, whereas when applied to a person it implies substance and has
     positive connotations. Compare lossage.

Din dicționarul Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856) :

  LOSS, contracts. The deprivation of something which one had, which was 
  either advantageous, agreeable or commodious. 
       2. In cases of partnership, the losses are in general borne by the 
  partners equally, unless stipulations or circumstance's manifest a different 
  intention. Story, Partn. Sec. 24. But it is not essential that the partners 
  should all share the losses. They may agree, that if there shall be no 
  profits, but a loss, that the loss shall be borne by one or more of the 
  partners exclusively, and that the others shall, inter se, be exempted from 
  all liabilities for losses. Colly. Partn. 11; Gow, Partn. 9; 3 M. & Wels. 
  357; 5 Barn. & Ald. 954 Story, Partn. Sec. 23. 
       3. When a thing sold is lost by an accident, as by fire, the loss falls 
  on the owner, res perit domino, and questions not unfrequently arise, as to 
  whether the thing has been delivered and passed to the purchaser, or whether 
  it remains still the property of the seller. See, on this subject, Delivery. 
  
  

Din dicționarul THE DEVIL'S DICTIONARY ((C)1911 Released April 15 1993) :

  LOSS, n.  Privation of that which we had, or had not.  Thus, in the
  latter sense, it is said of a defeated candidate that he "lost his
  election"; and of that eminent man, the poet Gilder, that he has "lost
  his mind."  It is in the former and more legitimate sense, that the
  word is used in the famous epitaph:
  
      Here Huntington's ashes long have lain
      Whose loss is our eternal gain,
      For while he exercised all his powers
      Whatever he gained, the loss was ours.
