Quoteworthy: Notch on Piracy

"Just pirate it. If you still like it when you can afford it in the future, buy it then. Also don't forget to feel bad. ;)" -- Mojang's Notch tweets in response to a question about getting a free Minecraft account. Thanks Destructoid via Gameranx.

Maybe the problem doesn't lie in the piracy statistics but instead the business model you're referring to.

100% This.

Notch seems a happy chappy with his success. Good on him.
However once corporations get involved it's never enough.
They will lie, pander, sleaze, grease, bend and outright break the laws to get you to part with your money BUT, don't ever break the law against them because then the tears will really flow.

i.e. "We're super rich but, you nasty pirates are preventing us from getting MEGA-ULTRA rich.
