It was very depressing to go through the facts mentioned in an email that was sent to us by a ProPakistani reader.
Telenor, who has been pinpointing the cheating, or what they call “Booti Culture”, has itself cheated the whole nation by copying an entire AD available on YouTube for on of its “Khamoshi ka Boycott” videos.
Copying a foreign ad isn’t new in Pakistan. Earlier, we have seen Zong, Mobilink (for such logo), Ufone, PTCL and other companies copying the concepts for their Videos, TVCs and logos, however, Telenor’s this act of lifting the whole AD and pasting it in their Keera video is a extraordinary example of Ctrl+Alt+A – Ctrl+C – Ctrl+V (Select All – Copy and then paste).
Telenor, on one hand, is discouraging the cheating culture, while on the other hand it is itself cheating its 25 million subscribers, Kiya yeh Khula Tazaad Nahi?
Following is what Shahid, a ProPakistani reader, wrote to us:
First Djuice disabled comments on its YouTube channel and then enable it when people started talking about their hypocrite approach against Khamoshi Ka Boycott.
Now guess what, their video “Khamoshi ka Boycott” on YouTube is not even original. It has been copied by Volkwagen Beetle ad. Check the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iefZI26XRFY.
It is the ad of VW Beetle and Djuice Khamoshi Ka Boycott video has copied keera clips from this video as it is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iOwV3lD0PGA
They didn’t even care to make changes in the video or reproduce. They just cut paste in their video. Please compare both videos and make these cheaters come to justice and they should be told that they cannot fool customers by making copies from other ads.
Shame on Telenor. Please Take Action!
And Propakistani, as per Djuice message, i am also trying Khamoshi Ka Boycott against Telenor plagiarism!
Have a look at following Videos for your reference.

Though we are not sure if Telenor got prior permission from the owner to reproduce the work or not.
