Hasbro sues Scrabulous makers

Co. preps alternative to Facebook application

What’s the word score for “lawsuit”?

Just weeks after launching its own officially sanctioned version of Scrabble on Facebook and other websites, Hasbro has filed a copyright infringement suit against the makers of Scrabulous, the ultra-popular Facebook app that’s a knockoff of Hasbro’s classic board game. It also sent a takedown notice to Facebook.

Though Scrabulous has been popular on Facebook for about a year, the toy company apparently didn’t want to engender online anger by taking down the game until it had an official alternative.
