These are font bundles for the Chinese Arphic fonts which work with the CJK package.

Arphic is actually the name of the company that which created the fonts 
(and put them under a GPL-like licence).

Location on CTAN: /fonts/arphic
License type: gpl
Announcement text: 

The four bundles contain revised versions of the four Arphic fonts bundles 
for simplified and traditional Chinese, as used in the CJK package for 
LaTeX.  It fixes omissions of some vertical glyph representation forms, 
improves the TFM metrics (however, the widths stay unchanged), and 
provides smaller PFB subfont files due to a newer version of FontForge 
used in the conversion process.
