Can this be copyrighted?

Recommended Posts

Hey all, I had an idea a while now for being able to "generate" music based on fragments of music data similar to the old .mod files patterns. I have since found M$ DirectMusic. This appears to have the same sort of thing! So now Im wondering wether I should bother writing my own little one. I doubt I would complete it, but if I did could there be issues with Microsofts? Can they copyright this sort of idea (or patent as the correct term may be) regards, GeniX www.cryo-genix.net

You''re basically talking about a form of sequencing, which has been around for quite a long time. The concept of sequencing is obviously not patented, so no legal problems there.
