SOPA protest

18 Jan, 2012

The official websites of Mojang and Minecraft are shut down to protest the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA). Users are unable to purchase Minecraft or play the browser-based version, but they can play the game if they have the client downloaded. Notch tells PC Gamer:

No sane person can be for SOPA, I don’t know if we’re sane, but we are strongly, uncompromisingly against SOPA, and any similar laws. Sacrificing freedom of speech for the benefit of corporate profit is abominable and disgusting.
