The Week: Media news - Facebook removes Scrabulous

Separately, Facebook has pulled Scrabulous, the unofficial online version of the Scrabble board game, from the website in the UK and most of the rest of the world after Mattel, the owner of the game outside the US and Canada, made a formal request for removal.

The application was taken off the social networking site in the US and Canada last month after Hasbro filed a lawsuit against the game designers Rajat and Jayant Agarwalla of India for trademark and copyright infringement.
