Copyrights[edit]

Here's the question I'd like resolved - is this a "legal" service? Has it been sanctioned by any of the Scrabble copyright holders? I suspect that it's not sanctioned by Hasbro in the US, but haven't found anything conclusive about this.

To the best of my knowledge it's not sanctioned, no. Mglovesfun 14:51, 24 April 2007 (UTC)

Cleanup[edit]

I do hate when people put a cleanup tag and then don't put anything on the talk page. I'll have a comb through it now but it looks ok. Mglovesfun 14:51, 24 April 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:ISCexample.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:ISCexample.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

Unsourced speculation[edit]

I removed this section:

==Controversy==
How does ISC operate without a license to the Scrabble trademarket either from Hasbro or one of the license holders in other countries? It would appear unauthorized use of the trademarked name 'Scrabble' in the name 'Internet Scrabble Club' is a violation of trademark laws in the US and other countries. (The name Scrabble is a trademark of Hasbro, Inc. in the US and Canada and of J. W. Spear & Sons PLC elsewhere.)

It's probably true, but we don't know any of this for sure without citations. Marnanel 23:58, 2 December 2007 (UTC)


notability[edit]

Someone has put on a tag questioning the notability of the subject of this article. I think ISC is notable.--Publunch (talk) 08:47, 26 September 2008 (UTC)

I think the main reason the notability can be questioned is that the article fails to highlight how ISC is different to any other multiplayer gaming website. In fact, their are multiple online scrabble websites but ofcourse not all of them are notable. To show this really you need references to prove that it is indeed different and worthy of being mentioned in an encyclopedia. I shall try find such references when I have spare time in the coming week. Ziphon (ALLears) 21:30, 19 January 2011 (UTC)
