I read a message suggesting the implimentation of passwords, to alter the contents of things like MOD files.
That concept really frightens me, since for my own entertainment I frequently take samples, and pieces of pattern data, and play around with it. Since I don't publish most of my work, let alone sell it, I'd hate to lose the abilities I now have to take advantage of the freedoms of the medium.
Another point against that would be that you would need to update tracking programs to listen to these protected mods. If I want to use ST3 to hear something, but it won't work I doubt FC's gonna update it.
Sorry to waste Board space with a farfetched worry.
