SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) -- Namco America and Sony BMG Music Entertainment said Aug. 22 they settled a lawsuit in which Namco charged that a Sony BMG artist used sounds from its popular Pac-Man arcade game in violation of intellectual property laws.

Namco America, a Namco Ltd. subsidiary, said the song at issue was "Game Over" from the album "U Gotta Feel Me," by Sony BMG recording artist Lil' Flip, a rapper hailing from Houston. Namco had filed the lawsuit in the federal District Court for the Southern District of New York.
