when to use lock

I have written a windows service that will be used as a licensing server for
a desktop application. I was planning to use a generic list to hold the
license objects. For the majority of the time the service will see a small
about of traffic, since the number of licenses that will need to be tracked
in less than 12. I was wondering if using Lock is safe and appropriate to
use on generic lists, or if I'm looking in the wrong place all together with
using Lock and maybe something more specific.

Thanks.

There can be contexts where you need to synchronize access to a generic
list. But why do you think you need to do it ?
