Games giant Hasbro has dropped its lawsuit against the developers of the hit Facebook game Scrabulous after they made changes that distanced their applications from the original and trademarked Scrabble game.
Hasbro, the world's biggest toy manufacturer, owns the rights to Scrabble in North America and began proceedings to sue RJ Softwares, founded by brothers Jayant and Rajat Agarwalla, in July over what it said was "infringement of intellectual properties" over Scrabulous.
