Let $(X, B)$ be a log canonical pair over a normal variety $Z$ with maximal Albanese dimension. If $K_X + B$ is relatively abundant over $Z$ (for example, $K_X + B$ is relatively big over $Z$), then we prove that $K_X + B$ is abundant. In particular, the subadditivity of Kodaira dimensions $\kappa (K_X + B) \geq \kappa (K_F + B_F) + \kappa (Z)$ holds, where $F$ is a general fiber, $K_F + B_F = {(K_X + B) \vert}_ F$, and $\kappa (Z)$ means the Kodaira dimension of a smooth model of $Z$. We discuss several variants of this result in Section 4. We also give a remark on the log Iitaka conjecture for log canonical pairs in Section 5.
