What prevents a user from copying the authorized license file to another computer?

Each license file contains computer specific system identifiers, and it compares these identifiers with the system data on the current computer the application is running on. So while a user could copy a license file to another machine, it wouldn't do any good because when they run your application, the copy protection check would see that the data in the license file doesn't match the data from the current machine, and this will trigger a copy protection test failure. At this point, the software could be configured to either start up as a trial, or prompt the user to activate the software.
