Hasbro Urged to Buy Rogue Scrabble Site
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
This is not the first time Hasbro has gone after an unofficial online version of Scrabble. A few years ago, the company squashed a site called e-Scrabble.

They want the toy company to purchase the site. And one fan suggests hiring the Scrabulous creators to keep it running.
