Scrabulous renamed to Wordscraper???

Look so ridiculous!! You create a fake of someone's application. Eventually, you got  sued. What you do? Just change the name of the application and face of the application and re-launch it.

Scrabuluos Relaunches As Wordscraper
Kolkata-based brothers, Rajat and Jayant Agarwalla, have relaunched Scrabuluos under a new Facebook application name called Wordscraper. On Tuesday, Scrabuluos was pulled off from the US and Canadian Facebook pages due to the lawsuit filed by gaming company Hasbro, which owns the rights for the game. Wordscraper has 15,000 users. The Agarwalla brothers have changed the name, changed the look of the board (instead of squares there are circles) and have also added some new rules. You also have the option to customise the supplied Wordscraper board to make it identical to a Scrabble board. This way the brothers can avoid getting sued for copyright infringement and can also keep their fans happy. When the application was pulled off on Tuesday, the Agrawalla Brothers had said in a release that they sincerely hope to bring their fans brighter news in the days to come. This they seem to have done now.
