Markus "Notch" Persson, Minecraft creator and co-founder of Mojang, added his two cents to the Stop Online Piracy argument today. When asked by PC Gamer about the bill before the House of Representatives, Notch said that a person would have to be crazy to support it.
“No sane person can be for SOPA,” he said. “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.”
Notch joins Riot Games, Epic Games and many others in the game industry that think SOPA and PIPA are bad ideas. Honestly his response to SOPA is not unexpected considering that he has always had somewhat of a pragmatic view of piracy.
