Pilipinas Kay Ganda Logo: Plagiarized or Inspired?

The Department of Tourism earned criticisms for its “Pilipinas Kay Ganda” (PKG) tourism slogan logo as it appears like “a high school drawing project.” Now, the DOT has been accused of plagiarism as it was discovered that the logo looks very similar to “Polska,” Polland's own tourism campaign.

Here are the two logos:

Our very good friend Wikipedia wrote that “Plagiarism” is defined in dictionaries as:
...the wrongful appropriation, close imitation, or purloining and publication, of another author's language, thoughts, ideas, or expressions, and the representation of them as one's own original work.”
It added that “plagiarism is not a crime but is disapproved more on the grounds of moral offense.”

According to a Friend Blogger (FB), plagiarism only applies if there is no appropriate recognition or proper credit to the one who did the original work. FB jokingly said “what the DOT should do is include in the logo the following phrase: Logo inspired by Polska”

Sounds funny but is a good suggestion. That is, if the DOT will consider having the current PKG logo as official and final.

If you are to be asked, do you think the logo has been “plagiarized” or just Polska “inspired?”
