+ In order to protect Minecraft (our "Game") and the members of our
+ community, we need these end user license terms to set out some rules for
+ downloading and using our Game. This license is a legal agreement between
+ you and us (Mojang AB) and describes the terms and conditions for using
+ the Game. We don't like reading license documents any more than you do, so
+ we have tried to keep this as short as possible. If you break these rules
+ we may stop you from using our Game. If we think it is necessary, we might
+ even have to ask our lawyers to help out.
+ If you buy, download, use or play our Game, you are agreeing to stick to
+ the rules of these end user license agreement ("EULA") terms. If you don't
+ want to or can't agree to these rules, then you must not buy, download,
+ use or play our Game. This EULA incorporates the terms of use for the
+ website ("Account Terms"), our brand and asset usage
+ guidelines, our privacy policy, and, if you live in the United States,
+ our Arbitration Agreement. By agreeing to this EULA you also agree to
+ all of the terms of the foregoing documents, so please read through them
+ carefully.
+ For those that who live in the United States, please click here to
+ review the binding arbitration agreement and class action waiver that is
+ part of this EULA. Under the agreement, we both agree to use a neutral
+ arbitrator to decide any individual claims that may arise and thus agree
+ to waive our rights to bring individual claims in court for consideration
+ by a judge or jury. We also agree that class action lawsuits and
+ class-wide arbitrations are not allowed under the terms of the agreement.
+ The complete Arbitration Agreement is on this page. You and we agree
+ to it; please read it.
+ The one major rule is that you must not distribute anything we've made
+ unless we specifically agree to it. By "distribute anything we've made"
+ what we mean is:
+ • give copies of our Game to anyone else;
+ • make commercial use of anything we've made;
+ • try to make money from anything we've made; or
+ • let other people get access to anything we've made in a way that is
+ unfair or unreasonable;
+ unless we specifically agree to it. And so that we are crystal clear, "the
+ Game" or "what we have made" includes, but is not limited to, the client
+ or the server software for our Game and includes Minecraft and Minecraft:
+ Java Edition on all platforms. It also includes updates, patches,
+ downloadable content, add-ons, or modified versions of a Game, part of
+ those things, or anything else we've made.
+ Otherwise we are quite relaxed about what you do - in fact we really
+ encourage you to do cool stuff - but just don't do those things that we
+ say you can't.
+ You have been granted a license to the Game so you can play and use it,
+ yourself, on your devices.
+ Below we also give you limited rights to do other things but we have to
+ draw a line somewhere or else people will go too far. If you wish to make
+ something pertaining to anything we've made we're humbled, but please make
+ sure that it can't be interpreted as being official and that it complies
+ with this EULA and the brand and asset usage guidelines and above all do
+ not make commercial use of anything we've made.
+ The license and permission we give you to use and play our Game can be
+ revoked if you break any of the terms of this EULA.
+ When you buy our Game, you receive a license that gives you permission to
+ install the Game on your own personal device and use and play it on that
+ device as set out in this EULA. This permission is personal to you, so you
+ are not allowed to distribute the Game (or any part of it) to anyone else.
+ This also means you cannot sell or rent the Game, or make it available for
+ access to other people and you cannot pass on or resell any license keys.
+ You may however give gift codes that have been bought through our official
+ gift code system. This is important to help us stop piracy and fraud and
+ to protect our Game. It is also important to prevent members of our
+ community from buying pirated versions of our Game or fraudulent license
+ keys - which we may cancel, such as in the case of fraud.
+ If you've bought the Game, you may play around with it and modify it by
+ adding modifications, tools, or plugins, which we will refer to
+ collectively as "Mods." By "Mods," we mean something original that you or
+ someone else created that doesn't contain a substantial part of our
+ copyrightable code or content. When you combine your Mod with the
+ Minecraft software, we will call that combination a "Modded Version" of
+ the Game. We have the final say on what constitutes a Mod and what
+ doesn't. You may not distribute any Modded Versions of our Game or
+ software, and we’d appreciate it if you didn’t use Mods for griefing.
+ Basically, Mods are okay to distribute; hacked versions or Modded Versions
+ of the Game client or server software are not okay to distribute.
+ Within reason you're free to do whatever you want with screenshots and
+ videos of the Game. By "within reason" we mean that you can't make any
+ commercial use of them or do things that are unfair or adversely affect
+ our rights unless we've specifically said it's okay in this EULA, allowed
+ it through the Brand and Asset Usage Guidelines, or provided for it in a
+ specific agreement with you. If you upload videos of the game to video
+ sharing and streaming sites you are however allowed to put ads on them.
+ Also, don't just rip art resources and pass them around, that's no fun.
+ Essentially the simple rule is do not make commercial use of anything
+ we've made unless we've specifically said it's okay. Oh and if the law
+ expressly allows it, such as under a "fair use" or fair dealing" doctrine
+ then that's ok too - but only to the extent that the law applicable to you
+ says so.
+ In order to ensure the integrity of the Game, we need all Game downloads
+ and updates to come from an authorized source. It's also important for us
+ that 3rd party tools/services don't seem "official" as we can't guarantee
+ their quality. It's part of the responsibility we have to the customers of
+ Minecraft. Make sure that you read through our brand and asset usage
+ guidelines too.
+ Although we license you permission to install on your device and play our
+ Game, we are still the owners of it. We are also the owners of our brands
+ and any content contained in the Game. Therefore, when you pay for our
+ Game, you are buying a license to play / use our Game in accordance with
+ this EULA - you are not buying the Game itself. The only permissions you
+ have in connection with the Game and your installation of it are the
+ permissions set out in this EULA.
+ Any Mods you create for the Game from scratch belong to you (including
+ pre-run Mods and in-memory Mods) and you can do whatever you want with
+ them, as long as you don't sell them for money / try to make money from
+ them and so long as you don’t distribute Modded Versions of the Game.
+ Remember that a Mod means something that is your original work and that
+ does not contain a substantial part of our code or content. You only own
+ what you created; you do not own our code or content.
+ If you make any content available on or through our Game, you agree to
+ give us permission to use, copy, modify, adapt, distribute, and publicly
+ display that content. This permission is irrevocable, and you also agree
+ to let us permit other people to use, copy, modify, adapt, distribute, and
+ publicly display your content. You are not giving up your ownership rights
+ in your content, you are just giving us and other users permission to use
+ it. For example, we may need to copy, reformat, and distribute content
+ that you post on our website so others can read it. If you don't want to
+ give us these permissions, do not make content available on or through our
+ Game. Please think carefully before you make any content available,
+ because it may be made public and might even be used by other people in a
+ way you don't like.
+ If you are going to make something available on or through our Game, it
+ must not be offensive to people or illegal, it must be honest, and it must
+ be your own creation. Some examples of the types of things you must not
+ make available using our Game include: posts that include racist or
+ homophobic language; posts that are bullying or trolling; posts that are
+ offensive or that damage our or another person's reputation; posts that
+ include porn or someone else's creation or image; or posts that
+ impersonate a moderator or try to trick or exploit people.
+ Any content you make available on our Game must also be your creation or
+ you must have permission or the legal right to do it. You must not and you
+ agree that you will not make any content available, using the Game that
+ infringes the rights of others. '
+ We reserve the right to take down any content in our discretion.
+ Please watch out if you are talking to people in our Game. It is hard for
+ either you or us to know for sure that what people say is true, or even if
+ people are really who they say they are. You should think twice about
+ giving out information about yourself.
+ We might make upgrades, updates or patches (we call them all "updates")
+ available from time to time, but we don't have to. We are also not obliged
+ to provide ongoing support or maintenance of any Game. Of course, we hope
+ to continue to release new updates for our Game, we just can't guarantee
+ that we will do so. With updates come changes that might not work well
+ with other software, such as Mods. This is unfortunate, but it is
+ something we don’t take responsibility for. If that is the case, try
+ running an older version.
+ The terms of this EULA do not affect any legal (statutory) rights that you
+ may have under the law that applies to you for the Game. You might have
+ certain rights which the law that applies to you says cannot be excluded.
+ Nothing we say in these terms will affect those legal rights, even if we
+ say something which sounds like it contradicts your legal rights. That’s
+ what we mean when we say “subject to applicable law”.
+ SUBJECT TO APPLICABLE LAW, When you get a copy of our Game, we provide it
+ "'as is"'. Updates are also provided "'as is"'. This means that we are not
+ making any promises to you about the standard or quality of our Game, or
+ that our Game will be uninterrupted or error free. We are not responsible
+ for any loss or damage that it may cause. You bear the entire risk as to
+ its quality and performance. You have to accept that we may release games
+ well before they are complete and so they may (and often will) have bugs
+ -but we prefer to release these features early than make you wait for
+ perfection. If you would like to notify us about a potential bug, we have
+ a site for that here.
+ If you and we ever have a dispute in court (and we hope that won't happen
+ just as much as you do), the exclusive forum (that is, the place it will
+ be handled) will be a state or federal court in King County, WA (if you
+ live in the United States) or a court in Ontario (if you live in Canada).
+ (If you live in the United States, most disputes go to arbitration, not
+ court.) The laws of your state or province govern this EULA and all
+ disputes, including disputes relating to it, our Game, or our Website,
+ regardless of conflict of laws principles, except that the Federal
+ Arbitration Act governs everything related to arbitration.
+ If we want we can terminate this EULA if you breach any of the terms. You
+ can terminate it too, at any time; all you have to do is uninstall the
+ Game from your device and the EULA will be terminated. If the EULA is
+ terminated, you will no longer have any of the rights to the Game given in
+ this license. You do still have the right to things you have created
+ yourself with the game of course. The Arbitration Agreement (if you live
+ in the United States) and the paragraphs about "Ownership of Our Game",
+ "Our Liability" and "General Stuff" will continue to apply even after the
+ EULA is terminated.
+ Your local law may give you rights that this EULA cannot change; if so,
+ this EULA applies as far as the law allows. Nothing in this license limits
+ our liability for death or bodily injury resulting from our negligence or
+ fraudulent misrepresentations.
+ We may change this EULA from time to time, if we have reason to, such as
+ changes to our games, our practices, or our legal obligation. But those
+ changes will be effective only to the extent that they can legally apply.
+ For example if you use the Game only in single-player mode and don't use
+ the updates we make available then the old EULA applies but if you do use
+ the updates or use parts of the game that rely on our providing ongoing
+ online services then the new EULA will apply. In that case we'll inform
+ you of the change before it takes effect, either by posting a notice on
+ our Website or by other reasonable means. We're not going to be unfair
+ about this though - but sometimes the law changes or someone does
+ something that affects other users of the Game and we therefore need to
+ put a lid on it.
+ If you come to us with a suggestion for any one of our Websites or Games,
+ that suggestion is made for free and we have no obligation to accept or
+ consider it. This means we can use or not use your suggestion in any way
+ we want and we don't have to pay you for it. If you think you have a
+ suggestion that we would be willing to pay you for, please do not submit
+ your suggestion unless you have first told us you expect to be paid and we
+ have responded in writing by asking you to submit the suggestion.
