Some content on the Internet (such as movies and music)
requires that users first get content licenses from the content
provider before playing the content. These content licenses are
automatically downloaded to your computer, for example, when you
rent or purchase protected content. Flash Player saves these licenses on
your computer. Deleting the license files prevents Flash Player
from playing this protected audio or video content, even if the
content itself remains on your computer. This is called deauthorizing
your computer. If you decide to sell, donate, or dispose of your
computer, deauthorize it to prevent unauthorized users from playing
protected content later.
Be careful when resetting license files. When you reset license
files, Flash Player resets all existing license files for protected
content that plays on your computer in Flash Player. You cannot
access this content from this computer until you have downloaded
new licenses from your content provider.
