QUOTE: The playing may soon stop. On July 24, gamemaker Hasbro (HAS), which owns the North American rights to Scrabble, demanded Facebook remove the Scrabulous program, saying it violates Hasbro's copyright. The same day Hasbro filed an intellectual property lawsuit against the Scrabulous creators, Rajat and Jayant Agarwalla, brothers and Scrabble fans from Kolkata, India, who created the game in 2005. "The Scrabulous site is a theft of intellectual property, and we can't allow that to continue," says Mark Blecher, Hasbro's general manager of digital media and gaming. "We expect that Facebook will take it down."

BusinessWeek Apr 23, 2007 The Sell-Phone Revolution: Stay tuned for a message from your cell phone, which seems to know an awful lot about you
QUOTE: Advertising is about to get very personal. Marketers are taking tools that they already use to track your Internet surfing and are preparing to combine that information with cell-phone customer data that include not just the area where you live but also the street you're standing on. The aim is to target the exact person who is most likely to buy a product at the precise moment they're most likely to buy it. It's the ad industry's dream come true: a perfect personalized pitch. For privacy advocates, though, this combination of behavioral and geographic targeting is an Orwellian nightmare
