File away another one - Namco has gone after a bunch of students learning to program.

The problem? They programmed a version of Pac-Man.

The really obnoxious part is at the end, where it says "While we appreciate the educational nature of your enterprise and look forward to the contributions of the future programmers you are training, part of their education should include concern for the intellectual property of others."
