After a fan asked Notch, the creator of widely acclaimed game Minecraft, for a a free account before he would inevitably download it illegally, Notch replied with an unexpected response. He encouraged the fan to pirate his creation but reminded him he had better feel guilty while doing so.


Minecraft has sold over 4 million copies and what better way to give back to the fans who made you a millionaire by giving away a few freebies. Cheers to you Notch.
