KTF Accused of Ad Plagerism

In a situation reminiscent of LG problem a year ago, KTF, one of Korea main mobile phone service providers, has been accused of copying a Microsoft Zune ad from the US. KTF's ad agency says the shots are common industry wide and any resemblance is coincidental.
This is one you can judge for yourself. 

Take a look at just the first 10 seconds of the Zune ad:

Meanwhile the KFT can be seen here. Note the last ten seconds of that ad with the first ten of the Zune.

As I said, LG confronted the same allegations about a year ago. See my post on it here. The past article had one of favorite quotes ever, "We borrowed the image, not stole it!"
