This is all absolute rubbish. I am a journalist and my husband is a lawyer, and we say NONSENSE.
Mojang cannot dictate gameplay of their game to any players or servers! It is not their right, any more than it is the right of Hasbro Games to dictate how individuals or Monopoly Clubs play the game of Monopoly! How absurd this is! Yet is has all the young server owners out there fooled and worried.
Mojang has sold a game to you. That is it. How you play that game is completely up to you! If you give perks to players that is YOUR CHOICE and Mojang has no rights over modifications NOT INVENTED BY THEMSELVES, or any other gameplay that is. It is a club that you have formed and your membership fee structure and how you allocate permissions to players is YOUR OWN BUSINESS.
What I would suggest to all server owners out there, that the only thing Mojang might be able to restrict, or anyone legally could restrict, would be personal profit from their game. Therefore, I STRONGLY advise that all server owners set up separate bank accounts for the club they run, the server fees to go into that and remain there to cover server costs. You should not make personal withdrawals from that account and all payments should have a clear trace of transaction. All above board. We all know perfectly well (but Mojang appears to be blind to) the fact that it is rare for a Minecraft server to make a profit. Keep your member donations/fees in one server account and that is fine. You are then not personally profiting from their game, you are simply managing a club and charging fees for its costs, all quite legal and necessary for any servers to be online, besides little home-based ones.
Mojang will, I predict, close up its open sourcing and try to charge for modpacks in future for its Realms. When they do, this will mark the death of Minecraft as the most popular game out there. And some bright young sparks will replace it with another open-source game for the clever young developers to create mods for. Foolish move, Mojang, if you do this.

Feb 10, 2012This is something that I myself have been trying to do for quite some time now, I believe that putting up a link leading to the download of more older versions of Minecraft. Sure the more up to date ones are great but still I'm sure a lot of people would back me up in saying that reminiscing on the older versions is great as well. on top of that it would be a big help if some one updated there game on accident.Posted in: Suggestions
I know this is a good idea, even if I myself can't list all the good reasons, its something to think about, and something I can honestly say others have thought about doing without going through all the hassle of looking up how to get the older versions with torrents and other long and annoying download processes.
All and All I think its something to thin about adding a page with all the Minecraft downloads back to Beta 1.0 and possibly even back into alpha.
If you like my idea please leave a like or even comment on it, who knows if we get enough views and likes maybe he will notice XD
But in all seriousness I believe this would be a great addition to the Minecraft.net web site
