No! You can’t have my Scrabulous!

scrab

Apparently, Hasbro are trying to shut down Scrabulous, the online Scrabble application, for licence infringement – i.e. Scrabulous doesn’t have one.

I’m sure that Hasbro has a valid complaint, although as the Fortune article points out, there are plenty of other online Scrabble knock-offs that they aren’t going after. I dare say their decision to target Scrabulous has something to do with the Facebook application with 2.3 million active users.

I hope that some kind of deal gets worked out, because as a Scrabulous addict aficionado this would seriously impact my personal happiness on a day to day basis. I might have to start playing some other kind of online games. And who knows where that could lead 😦
