Xbox head honcho Phil Spencer has laid to rest concerns that Microsoft's acquisition of Minecraft developer Mojang will affect people who publish YouTube videos of the game for fun or profit.

The concerns quickly came to light once the deal announcement was made, with prominent YouTubers making it clear that they were concerned that big, bad Microsoft would start hitting them with copyright strikes for publishing content created in Minecraft, be it on Xbox One, Xbox 360, or any other platform.

Spencer clarified in a Tweet earlier this afternoon that nothing will change. Once the deal goes through, YouTubers will be unaffected, so they can keep on doing what they're doing without having to fear the machine.


Hats off to Phil for the transparency.
