No more advertisements or paid promotions built inside of Minecraft

A lot of people just lost their jobs

Minecraft developer Mojang just updated its commercial usage guidelines because it isn't happy with advertisements and paid promotions in the game.

What this means is if you're an ad agency, corporation, non-profit, or even a politician, you can't build or hire someone to build you an advertisement mod or server using Minecraft. Mojang provided such examples as building a world based on a movie or TV show, or making an official movie trailer out of gameplay footage.

Of course, fans are still able to make anything they wish as long as they aren't paid for it or charge for it. This also doesn't impact video monetization. Check out all the specific changes here.
