hmmm... a nice idea is:
"a password protection for editing, playing or
sample-ripping", for the FT2, IT or for the
ModPlug Tracker.

Excellent idea, except that this won't help with
older songs that were written before this option
was available. Sure, you could re-save all of your
old songs with the new password protection, but
there'd still be unprotected copies of those songs
out on people's hard drives. But I guess all we
can really do to stop the ripping of older songs
is what we've been doing for years: stay vigilant
and scream bloody murder when we catch someone in
the act. At least we can better protect the newer
songs though.

See ya!
