Mojang Takes on Government Surveillance

If you went to Minecraft.net today, you were probably surprised to see a big flashing ad about something called Reset the Net. What’s up with that?

What’s up is that Mojang seems to have joined a campaign to discourage governments from spying on citizens using the internet. According to a Mojang blog post, Reset the Net was inspired by  NSA (National Security Agency) and GCHQ (Government Communications Headquarters) spying on internet and phone communications.

The campaign, which has “Don’t ask for your privacy. Take it back,” as its slogan, is supported by dozens of companies including big players like Google. It asks internet users to sign a privacy pledge and then shows ways to protect yourself from spying.
