Copy of a rip off is a shameless rip?
Let the [Apple] media tell it and you’ll believe Samsung copied Apple’s “Hello” commercial but…then again…the original iPhone commercial was a rip off.
Will Park way back in the olden days of 2007 wrote Apple Ripped Off Their 2007 Oscar’s iPhone Commercial which had this quote from Christian Marclay regarding Telephones from 1995 and how Apple handled it:
So, according to Marclay, Apple “approached us [about using Telephones] and I said no, and then they just went ahead. The way they dealt with the whole thing is pretty sleazy.”
Guess it is a copy of a rip off.
