Files that contain the .lic file extension are license files that are used for a variety of different software applications.
An LIC file will usually contain the registration information that pertains to the software application that is associated with it. These files are commonly used with shareware applications.
An LIC file is created when a user registers the application with the software company he or she downloaded the software from.
LIC files are often encrypted or encoded so as not to jeopardize the license rights of the associated software programs, although they are sometimes saved in a simple text-based format.
