Why might a professor need to password protect a document? Have you used this feature before? If so, how?

So you can ensure fair use and protect copyright.

Honestly, I can't think of too many instances where putting a password on a word document would be required for student/professor communication. PDF's and mp3's are a different story, but aren't word documents for editing and revising anyway?
