It appears that Minecraft maps are so valuable at this point that you can now purchase one off of eBay.
This is old ive seen dozens of these on ebay
tbh no its not sad if somebody doesnt have time to build that but wants to enjoy it then there welcome to buy it. and also if your good at creating stuff in any game then why not being able to make a bit of money from something your good at doing.
but the enjoyment comes from making it!
Are there not any legal issues with this?
After looking at the studios rights etc etc...it is perfectly legal >.<
I would have thought there would have been a legal issue here. Yet again, Notch is a cool dude, I'm sure he's okay with this.
There will be that one guy that DOES buy it and put it on the web for everyone else after changing around a few blocks.
they wouldnt even have to change anything. its not theirs to do anything about. it may be legal to sell it, but its also legal to distribute for free as the person who is selling the map file cant own rights to a custom map
