Terminator: Sarah Connor Ad Copies Student Work

While being "inspired by" and "paying homage" to the work of another artist is one thing, blatantly copying someone's work without crediting them is another story. The fact that it's a big player like Fox channel who is ripping the work of a student makes it much worse.

The new “Terminator - Sarah Connor Chronicles” advertisement clearly and liberally copies the work of an advertisement student that had been posted on their blog several months ahead of the Fox campaign.

I think the resemblance is striking and obviously more than a coincidence.

All Fox needed to do was credit the poor student and pay him to use his work. What do you think?
