It's easy to have this attitude when you've already made more money than you could have imagined from your one-man independant endeavor. But I promise, this attitude does not work when you're trying to convince capital investers to fork over tens to hundreds of millions of dollars to make a game.

At this point, it's just free extra money for Notch and it would be pointless to not pander.
Agreed. I like his position, but it's clearly a position of convenience. Mojng made nearly $250K selling Minecraft in the last 24 hours; he doesn't have to worry about pirates.
