Minecraft is a game that has captivated millions of people around the world. It’s a sandbox game in which players can build anything they can imagine, and it allows for creative freedom unlike any other video game on the market today. But what is Minecraft, really? Is it a toy? A game? A learning tool? And most importantly, where can you find licensed content for it? In this blog post, we will answer all of these questions and more. So read on to learn everything you need to know about Minecraft and licensed content!
What is Minecraft?
Minecraft is a sandbox video game created by Markus “Notch” Persson and Mojang. The game allows players to construct buildings and creatures out of textured blocks, then explore these structures and realms alone or with others in a persistent world. Players can also trade items with each other, join forces in cooperative play, or battle against each other in PvP mode.
Minecraft was initially released on May 17, 2009, for Microsoft Windows; versions for OS X and Linux were later released. A version for the Xbox 360 was announced at E3 2010 but never materialized. Minecraft has since been ported to numerous mobile platforms, including Android, iOS, Blackberry 10 (via Forge), PlayStation 3 (via PlayStation Mobile), Xbox One and Wii U via Java Edition.
How to Licensed Content in Minecraft
Minecraft is a game where players build things from the ground up. With a license, you can add content that is copyrighted by another company. There are three ways to get licensed content in Minecraft: using mods, using textures, or using models. Mods allow you to use the copyrighted content without giving anyone credit. Textures allow you to use the copyrighted content without giving anyone credit or crediting the copyright holder. Models allow you to use the copyrighted content without giving anyone credit or crediting the copyright holder, but they also require attribution.
To use a mod that includes copyrighted content, you need to get permission from the copyright holder. To find out who owns the copyright for a texture, look on the texture’s page on TexturePacksDB.com or on Jam Pack Utilities’ website. For models, look on the model’s page on BukkitDev’s website or on MCPEJailbreak’s website. Once you’ve found out who owns the copyright for a specific model or texture, contact them and ask for permission to use it in your mod.
If you plan to include any copyrighted models in your mod, make sure to get permission from both the model creator and the Minecraft developer who created the blockmodel library that the model is based off of (for example, see this blog post for more information).

If you’re reading this, it’s safe to assume you’re at least somewhat familiar with Minecraft. In case you’re not, let me quickly fill you in: Minecraft is an open-world sandbox game where players explore a procedurally generated world and build things using blocks made of various materials.
The game includes features like multiplayer (so friends can join in on the fun), modding (so players can create their own modifications to the game), and more. One of the great things about Minecraft is that it’s a great platform for licensing content.
If you want to include someone else’s work in your project — be it pictures or music — there are few restrictions other than ensuring that you give credit where credit is due. With so many people creating content for Minecraft, finding the right way to license your content shouldn’t be too difficult. So what are you waiting for? Get started licensing your content today!
