About Me

I'm a journalist, ex-national papers, now working in what we call "new" media.

According to Valleywag, Hambros, the makers of Scrabble have filed a lawsuit against the men behind Scrabulous, which is now the only reason to spend time on Facebook. Valleywag, which is never wrong, says Hambros is bound to win.

I can't help thinking that Hambros are in danger of buying themselves a lot of ill will, given the huge popularity of Scrabulous. If they close Scrabulous down and replace it with their own legit Facebook app, I predict a backlash and a boycott. Wouldn't it have been better to do some sort of deal?
