Facebook game Scrabulous turns into Wordscraper

In case you haven't already noticed the flurry of people adding the Wordscraper application on your news feed, the Facebook application Scrabulous changed the name of their game to Wordscraper in an effort to dodge copyright and trademark laws of being too similar to Hasbro's Scrabble.

On Tuesday, the Scrabulous application was disabled after Hasbro filed a lawsuit against Scrabulous for copyright infringement.

The new game not only has a different name, but instead of square tiles and spaces, it uses circles. And the point system is very different.
