Facebook Plays Scrabulous With Hasbro: Spells Lawsuit
Scrabulous, the popular Facebook application, currently spells a rather common word for the social networking site: lawsuit. Mattel and Hasbro threaten to take Facebook to court if the popular application is not removed.

It's possible that 23-year-old Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is already thinking about making a licensing deal with Mattel and Hasbro. It's either that or going to court, and it's not likely that Facebook will do too well in the legal field. There's also the possibility of complying with the demands and dump Scrabulous, but giving up on such a highlight is a decision hard to make.
The social networking site users have already formed Save Scrabulous Facebook group, which has already surpassed the 4,000 users milestone.
Scrabulous was created by brothers Rajat and Jayant Agarwalla, while Facebook only hosts and promotes the game.
