Ok for my second posting… So after the demise of Scrabulous I went to upload ‘scrabble worldwide’ so that I can play with my friends in Sydney, but because I am in NY I can’t use it, I have to use Scrabble Beta, but then when I am in London (I spend 50% of my time in New York and the rest in London and a little bit in Sydney) I can’t play it.
I don’t think that it is cool for the Indian dudes to copy scrabble exactly and make money from it… but actually I do! they built a better game (current rating of scrabble worldwide is 1.5), which actually works.
Hasbro / Mattel are so inept and backwards that instead of trying to embrace the popularity on facebook and for example do a deal with the Indians so that they can sell physical games to the millions of fans playing it, they shut it down and replaced it with something SHIT that doesn’t work. Old company thinking which I just can’t stand.
Licensing and copyright are crap outdated concepts, no wonder people are ‘stealing’ music. Good on them. I do too. Copyright is something that will look very different in 50 years time… it should do anyway.
