    Thanks Jayson,

    This is not a case of copycat verses originality. All of the featured examples had purchased the royalty-free photo from a renowned image library. The question is why would a reputable business such as Vodafone using the creative services of an internationally affiliated agency end up with a full page ad based on a royalty-free image?
