Bollywood steals from Webcomics!

I've remarked in the past about how rampant the theft of intellectual property is in India. 3 out of 4 Bollywood movies are unlicensed remakes of Hollywood films. But check this out.

Here's today's installment of "Say Cheez!" from the Mumbai MidDay. Have a look at the new character.

and here is a strip from Butternut Squash. Take a look at the strip's main character.

Ladies and gentlemen, they've started stealing from Webcomics. Should we be offended, or proud?
