Copyright and trademark issues – updates on the Hasbro & Scrabulous case
I blogged this story when the legal battle was in progress.  SpicyIP recently blogged the outcome of the case and more recently an update to the story (lead link).  In the update they provide some useful insights and analysis of the trademark and copyright arguments.  I personally found this case interesting as it seemed to highlight a clash of the new and old (the online vs. pre-online worlds).  Plus, at the time many commented on ways this case may have been avoided by Hasbro whilst benefiting from exploiting a new opportunity.  Finally, the whole story provides some interesting analysis and comment for those who like to chew the fat on copyrights and trademarks!
