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!"

your link to the KTF one only takes me to the SHOW site. Any other way to see it?

An IP lawyer that can't spell 'plagiarism'! Next you'll be misusing 'then' and 'than'.

That a big accusation. Hopefully things would work out fine and their names be cleared.
