that word is: illegal.
news is that the owners of the original scrabble game (hasbro and mattel) are complaining about copyright infringement by facebook in the hosting of one of its top ten applications - scrabulous.
see the full story here.
i have to say that the app has got me into playing scrabble when i never liked it before, and keeps me in touch with a number of friends. surely there is an amicable solution out there? hmmmmm ... lots of people should be home from school by now - i'd better go check and see if it is my turn again yet!
