Hold the front page! Well this is a website so, er, hit the refresh button! Terrible news has just been announced. The amazingly addictive and fun Scrabulous application available on Facebook has been told it needs to be taken down because, according to the BBC website, ?lawyers for toy makers Hasbro and Mattel say Scrabulous infringes their copyright on the board-based word game.?
This is awful news for anyone who works in an office where Facebook is still not banned. I know several people who claim their day is only bearable because they are technically ?being paid to play Scrabulous.?
I?ve yet to play the word ?lingerie? but as it?s eight letters long it would be worth quite a fair few points. Fifty for the bingo (using all your letters) and at least 9 for the tiles?
For the love of words don?t take it away!
