This is the kind of confusion created by the usage of the term
"Intelectual Property". This is a TRADEMARK issue, not a copyright one.
That means that if a judge believes his armadillo will confuse someone
to thinking that his project is related to Infogrames he will loose in
court. He should ask a (rtrademark) lawyer and then decide if he should
simply change the logo or risk going to court.
