Authoring an enormously successful indie game comes with advantages other than money or recognition. It also comes with a decent-sized soapbox. And what Minecraft creator Notch chose to do with his at GDC was to tackle the oft-discussed, but never ever settled problem of piracy. His take? Unsurprisingly sane, if slightly confusingly stated.
“If someone copies your game a trillion times, you won’t have lost a single cent,” Persson said. “Some people are using that to ruin the internet.” Before you ask, yes, he does mean the shelved, but by no means dead SOPA act.
“I still think piracy is wrong, but the the level of wrong me calling my friend an idiot. It’s wrong but it’s such a minor thing. It’s ridiculously small,” he added.
