Scrabulous Pulled From Facebook

Popular Scrabble clone Scrabulous has been disabled for Facebook users in the US and Canada due to the Hasbro lawsuit against the Facebook app. Hasbro claim “Patent Infringement” on their word based game. The lawsuit states that Scrabulous uses “essential and original elements” from Scrabble and that the two names are “confusingly similar”. The company is now reviewing their position in other countries due to Mattel owning the franchise outside of the US.
