All radio users are services.
Even CB and FRS are services, heck it is in the acrynom of FRS Family 
Radio *Service*

the only difference between Amateur radio services and CB etc. from ITU 
points of view is that Amateur radio is it's own services while CB and 
other simular services are gathered under mobile service, along with 
And no licence is not the distinction, Netherlands and I think several 
other countries have amatuer radio service as licence free under 
conditions with registration, one of the conditions being the need to 
pass a test.
