Title: EULA
Post by: Eternal on July 10, 2016, 10:13:53 pm
As far as the EULA is concerned, we cannot sell items or offer in-game money in exchange for real money. We can only offer items that are cosmetic (hats, pets e.t.c) and we can legally accept donations assuming we abide by these rules. We could re-enable ecopet and sell pets because they provide no alteration to thr fairness of gameplay between all players.


Hosting servers I would think is very legal. There are companies set up purely to host minecraft servers and none are shut down. So it would appear okay. I can look into this further but I would say, yes, it's legal.

Just reaf "commercial use" is illegal umder Mojang's EULA which means server hosting banned BUT if it's run from an internal server for external customers it's void from commercial licensing, hence being legal.

Found this, so I quoted it:

"If you use content for general research, even if not for any specific purpose, and you or your organisation generates income, that counts as commercial use. So does using content for pro-bono work (from the Latin pro bono publico, meaning 'for the public good', or working for free), if it also enhances your reputation or leads to income-generating work in any way whatsoever."

Make of it what you will. I'm 16 lol, I'm clueless haha

If the law in your area permits commercial usage or has laws around them, read that.
