GlobalLock  is basically a locking mechanism by which we will be able ptovide controlled access to the shared resource one t a time.
Once you call the GlobalLock function, other applications cannot move or delete the memory till all the other application releases its lock. 

In the case of a clipboard , it is essentially a shared memory where these sort of methods are applicable..
