Intellectual property issue regarding Pac-Man sounds being used in Lil' Flip song resolved amicably.
Namco and Sony BMG today announced an out-of-court settlement that resolves an intellectual property rights lawsuit brought earlier by Namco.
Namco had claimed that Sony BMG artist Lil' Flip had swiped sounds from its arcade classic Pac-Man for use in "Game Over," a single off his 2004 double album U Gotta Feel Me.
Details of the settlement weren't released, but it was said to be an amicable resolution, and the companies jointly released the following statement: "Namco and Sony BMG are pleased to have resolved this matter and we look forward to continuing our business relationship in the spirit of our mutual respect for intellectual property."
