Jason Venter writes: "At the Game Developer Conference, Minecraft creator Notch is reported to have said: "Piracy isn't theft. If you steal a car, the original is lost. If you copy a game, there are simply more of them in the world." Minecraft swept the PC world by storm thanks to the creative construction it has enabled. There's no doubt that Notch knows how to put together something special, but that doesn't mean that rational people who haven't made great games can't disagree with his apparent stance on piracy."
