the image of The Pac Man is copyrighted and nobody is allowed to use this image without the direct permission from Namco. So apparently Floyd Mayweather Jr may have violated a copyright image which is a violation of the law. The penalty first would be to cease and desist on making anymore shirts that has the Pac Man image, then the penalty can go up to $30,000 for each work infringement up to $150,000. The infringer (Floyd) will also have to pay the attorney fees incurred by the copyright owner. Given Floyd’s lack of thought, this could spell another problem for Floyd. Floyd Jr is facing a lawsuit for slander and defamation of character from Manny Pacquiao. Floyd is also facing charges of larceny and assault against his former girl friend and mother of his children Josie Harris. And also on two separate incidences, 2 security guards were assaulted by Floyd and is now heading to court. Now there is a possibility the owners of the image of Pac Man may have to notify Floyd Mayweather Jr to cease making anymore shirts with the Pac Man image. The Superstar doesn’t know if someone contacted the owner of the Pac Man image and if they have been made aware of the use of their Pac Man image. The Superstar wonders if Floyd Jr is aware that he may have violated the law again? Has Floyd ever entertained the idea that he should not be using a copyrighted image? Apparently those who are in Team Mayweather did not bother to check if they broke the law. It does not surprise The Superstar, Team Mayweather are more focused on kissing up to Floyd rather than keeping him out of trouble.

@gritsteel2: Good point. TECHNICALLY-SPEAKING Pacland could be liable for copyright infringement (especially since this site is an income-generating site)!

It could be a yellow pie chart in a black background as long as it doesn't have any pellets or wafers or an eye like the stupid T-shirt Floyd jr. made.

A yellow piechart with a black background without the names (WITH a Hyphen) Pac-Land or Pac-Man (TM of NAMCO) or waffers or pellets or a piechart with an eye is, I think, viable.

This site can also put a disclaimer that any Pac-Man or Pac-Land logo or images, should it be on this site, is the TM of NAMCO.

PACMAN or PACLAND doesn't have the hyphen when used for Pacquiao or this website, so I think they can get away with it.

I hope Google got permission for their Pac-Man rendition:http://www.google.com/pacman/

Pacquiao image on Pacland was made way way before Namco have the exclusive contract. Hence Pacland did not breach the Namco contract.

The TS himself is guilty of plagiarism. Aside from just copy/pasting the original source of the above statement and making it appear that he kind of wrote the article, he should have also provided the link to the original article below.

How about "Brothers from another mother", is it alright to copy images and post it in Pacland ? Want to post images long time ago but thinking of infringement or copyright violation prevented me of doing so. Hope if you have some knowledge about this please let us know if it is safe here in Pacland.
