I'm not saying I have pirated it, I know anyone who has pirated it, or any pirating will ever go on, but in a hypothetical world where hypothetical things happen and people hypothetically pirate stuff, what's the difference between the pirated version of minecraft and the legit version?

I think, even with all the hypothetical-ities in this thread, it still breaks the rules stated for the forums of "[NO] Sources and use of illegally obtained material or intellectual property (theft or piracy)."

I bought it legit awhile ago, and when I tried my old pirate copy, I couldn't play without going online at least once. So the pirate copy pretty much doesn't work.  
Just buy it, seriously. I am done with pirating games, it is more trouble than its worth.
