No time to blog on the eve of Rosh Hashana, but we had to pass this development in the Scrabulous story on before the sun begins its descent:

Mattel, which owns the international rights to Scrabble, said today it would appeal last week’s court ruling in India that the Scrabulous online word game did not violate Mattel’s copyrights.

The court did, however, say Scrabulous infringed on the El Segundo toy company’s Scrabble trademark, handing both parties a mixed victory.

That’s it for old business.  You’re on your own until Thursday!
