Mattel has asked Facebook to remove a popular application on the site called Scrabulous.s

Based on Scrabble, the word game application has been downloaded by over 2.5m Facebook users, but Mattel which owns the brand in Europe has complained to the social network of copyright infringement.

Two young developers created the application, the pair reportedly earn up to £6,500 ($13,000) in revenue from it each month.

Campaign groups to save the game have already attracted thousands of Facebook users.
