Namco America has filed a lawsuit against rapper Lil’ Flip and Sony Music Entertainment for copyright infringement, over the rapper’s hit song “Game Over.”
In a lawsuit filed in US District Court, Southern District of New York, Namco alleges their copyright was infringed upon, when sounds from the game “Pac-Man” and “Ms. Pac-Man” were included on “Game Over” and the remix to the song.
Lawyers for Namco were tightlipped about the details of the case.
The lawsuit alleges the sampled portions of the songs were never cleared and cited that the song contained references to guns, drugs and profanity.
Sources stated that Namco is seeking millions in damages, with some stating the amount could be as high as $10 million dollars.
“Game Over” is taken from Lil’ Flip’s platinum selling double album U Gotta Feel Me.
