UPDATE: Notch has since clarified that the tweet was said purely out of frustration.
That was said of of frustration, there’s no way I’d abandon that many fans. <3

Well it seems as if the latest attempt at grabbing some money by Uniloc has really gotten the best of Markus “Notch” Persson, owner of Mojang, the creator of Minecraft. The lawsuit is against the company for software which consists of “computer code executable on an electronic device to prevent unauthorized access to electronic data stored on the electronic device.”
I’d rather stop selling our games in the US than to continue be at the mercy of their messed up legal system. — Markus Persson (@notch) July 24, 2012
It’s a rather grim outlook on the situation, but it is understandable given the fact that Mojang is based out of Sweden so they aren’t used to the tons of frivolous lawsuits that Americans hear about every day.
