There was no answer a day after I submitted my question about code protection on the BL2600, so I checked other questions and no answers showed up but perhaps the Forum was not being updated. That's why I asked the question about the usefulness of the Forum. Now I see that answers are showing up, so apparently the Forum is alive.
Unfortunately I don't believe there is a good answer to code protection for the BL2600 unless there is a way to require an activation thru the ethernet port. If anyone has any ideas about how to protect the code from piracy or a way to require some kind of activation, please let me know. Otherwise I don't believe that I will be able to use the BL2600 for my project as the systems would be delivered worldwide and I don't want them to be pirated.
