As Minecraft’s developer tweeted yesterday, those who can’t afford to pay for Minecraft can go ahead and pirate it. Just wow. But what does this mean? Is Notch encouraging to pirate his game? Apparently not, as he explained later on that he does not exactly approve it, but thinks that ‘it’s a minor offense in the scale of things’. Notch was also surprised with how the media responded to his views on piracy."
