This really depends on what you want to do.  While QT Pro lets you edit 
movies it will not let you add interactivity using sprite tracks which 
is you need to add something like password protection I mentioned 
previously.  For this type of QT editing I couldn't live without 
LiveStage Pro from TotallyHip <www.totallyhip.com>.  It is an 
incredibly comprehensive tool that allows you to exploit most 
everything that the QuickTime architecture has to offer.

If you are interested in Wired QuickTime then I would pick up the book 
"Interactive QuickTime - Authoring Wired Media" by Matthew Peterson.  
This goes into great detail about interactive QuickTime and you get 
something like $150 off a purchase of LiveStage Pro if you buy within 
30 days of buying the book.  This book explains how to use sprite 
tracks to add a little DRM to your movies.
