    i am confused so
    is it because of the client itself we all are bound to EULA? or what?

    I never thought it did, but @shoghicp replied to one of my tweets saying that it does apply now.

    Doesn't matter when you purchase/use you agree to those terms.

    PocketMine should have a EULA text file in the server files somewhat like PC servers.

    PocketMine itself isn't bound to the EULA, it is a piece of software developed independently that happens to be made in such a way that MCPE clients can connect to it. Bukkit was a whole different kettle of fish because it used code from Minecraft itself. When you use PocketMine and allow MCPE clients to connect, you are controlling the in-game experience of a product which is bound to the EULA, which likely binds you too in a way. However, it is unclear what Mojang can actually do about this and how it would hold up in any sort of legal case.

    Fixed that. I really should have "Bukkit" in my computer's autocorrect dictionary.

    Not enough people would use that client and if you used the same assets, like textures, that would itself be serious copyright infringement.

    But remember not to make it a paid product.
