Potayto... Potaatoo

We all know that ALBATREEK just flipped the "M" in McDonalds in their logo.
We are aware of the fact that Kanafani came "before" Kanafji... right?
You get my point? No?
Did you see anything "unusual" in the two pictures above?
Let me elaborate!!
Funny how two groups on facebook share "almost exactly" the same "Basic Info"!
How some people are just too lazy to even take a minute to hide the fact that they're copying someone else's work...
And "coincidentally" using the same logo colors ... COME ON!!!!!
If Dar Al Sharg group needed "help" in writing something in English.... FIVE60 group would not have even hesitated in helping them out!
Stealing a concept is one thing, we see it everyday... but stealing an identity is a disgrace!

its never about the logo.
compare zain and viva in the few coming months for example- viva is approaching people from the same concept zain are.

i mean no one should feel threatened. you know your better- just keep up the good work.

plus copying means success.
and the logos don't even look the same ;p -

That's so pathetic of them :O

At least it's reassurance that you're doing an exceptional job. Keep up the good work.

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. (!)

It is aggravating, when you have put so much work into something original, to make it perfect, to match the logo, artwork, concept and have a perfect package, and then to have someone lift YOUR idea. I guess there is no real copyright protection enforcement. . . . how's the mobile phone ban while driving doing?

loool aham shay even the caps are the same, but i noticed the email they're using, "ebda3ati"...which, correct me if am wrong, is according to what i heard a copy of p2bk funded by a certain someone who wants to represent el "shabab" in the next elections
