Mojang Restricting Minecraft Servers to Make Money, Change in EULA Expected

SegmentNext - "Mojang makes it clear - You cannot make money from Minecraft. Either go 100% donation or prepare yourself for lawsuit". (Minecraft, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Providing a reward for someone who coughs up money to support the server is not a purchase. It's a reward. Though people did suggest on my server to add an option to donate for bluilding materials, I turned that down. That would not be a reward. That would be a purchase..

Also how could they regulate what I could do if I offered special bonuses from a plugin not owned by mojang. Does that count?

They probably aren't. But in order to hold copyright to your property, you need to defend it. That's according to law in the united states at least. Not sure about Sweden.

Here's about the truth to it all.

You can make a killing off Minecraft. Those stupid little rich kids dropping $700-$1000 on perks and plugin items alone, such as OP pickaxes, fly mode, daily enchanted armor etc.
It's like taking candy from a baby.

Changes to the EULA?
It's ALWAYS been in the EULA that selling stuff is not allowed.
It was just never enforced.

And how are they going to enforce this?
No way in hell they can keep tabs on every single private/pirate server out there...

Not only is this trashy article completely nonsensical and full of moronic spelling errors and grammar problems a five year-old could fix, it's riddled with the worst forced ads I've ever encountered on N4G. You can't even read the damned thing without watching a video that intrudes 30 seconds after page load (on top of another full-screen ad)-- no option to skip.

The author expects potential readers to tolerate their imbecilic writing with so little respect for us that they don't even proofread their work , AND they jam ads down our throat to make money off of us despite their clear lack of effort (or they're too stupid to do so, which is of course plausible)? I'll make sure to never visit this disgusting, worthless site again, and everyone would be wise to remember the name "Segment Next " before clicking.

AdBlock and NoScript are your friends (on Firefox--I can't speak about anything else, because I don't use anything else). I didn't even know there were such shenanigans intruding at all. I read the story and source quotes without issue.

Speaking of source quotes, really? Does it hurt Mojang so much for some people to make money off their work with Minecraft, that they need to involve "really mean lawyers"? In fact, I don't get how it would hurt Mojang at all. It may even help, by keeping interest in the game higher. So what's the deal? I'm so disappointed in Notch about this. I thought he was one of us. I guess runaway money and success corrupts everyone.

Disclaimer: I don't even play Minecraft on PC, let alone do any server stuff with it.

I'm sure you're right-- I usually browse this site on my PC, but when I left this comment, I had been on my phone.
