One last idea: did Konami pay any license to publish the Q*Bert game? Neither in the box nor in the instructions or the game itself I have seen any copyright notice or any agreement with the legal owners of the original name and game idea. Were they sued for this? As far as I know, the answer is NO.

Konami licensed Q*Bert from D. Gottlieb & Co. back in 1982. Proof of this is in MAME, 'qbertjp'.
So there...

Then you are right. But the MSX version doesn't indicate any copyright notice.
And continuing with this thread, what about copyright and game translations?
