Scrabulous suit dropped by Hasbro


Hasbro has dropped its lawsuit against the creators of Facebook app. sensation Scrabulous. No reason was given in court documents as to why Hasbro dismissed its suit against the makers of the Scrabble clone, but a statement by the defendants reveals an "agreement" between the two parties "avoids potentially lengthy and costly litigations."

Electronic Arts has had an authorized Scrabble app. on Facebook since July. Mattel, which owns the rights to Scrabble outside North America, also currently has a lawsuit pending against the Scrabulous creators in its home country of India. There's currently no update of the status of that lawsuit.
