Markuss Persson, the creator of Minecraft, has simply told to a fan to pirate his game. This is due to the user asking about free accounts as he didn’t have the cash.
@AndresLeay 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. 😉

To me, it seems pretty classy of the guy to promote the piracy of his own product. Most developers these days hate piracy, but if they bring it up they change their views based on who owns the product. Not this guy, he stays true to his values.
