'Who is the Copy Cat' Competition

Who is the Copy Cat, Who is not
Alright .. welcome to the first UAE Blogger Competition.

The rules are very easy. In the image above, all what you need to do is find out who is the logo copy cat and email me your answers (or guesses) to dubaimirroratgmaildotcom in this format.: No. Copy cat Logo

For example; The answer to No.1 , which i think is the most difficult one (sic), is like this: 1. first logo

The logos were supplied by Mr. Copy Cat Cop who, for the sake of not compromising competition integrity, I shall not reveal his/her identity till its after the competition deadline.

This is not a joke. The blogger that gets all answers correct in 3 days from the date of the post, will receive a fabulous and 100% original blogger t-shirt - or this one if the winner is a female - mailed straight to his or her doorstep*.

Prize is sponsored by your No. 1 favorite newspa...errm... i mean blog, Dubai Consumer Mirror.

Good Luck!

* Only notified winner will submit personal details to receive prize. Winner's personal prize delivery details (name, address, t-shirt size..etc) will be completely and entirely confidential.


  • totally off the topic.. seems u work in the media/advertising/marketing sector..

    interesting stuff though, but lots of hard work though.. the Hassan's one is original by the way,, never heard of Harrods before!

  • Very interesting. Seems that Mrs.M, is doing all the unpacking and setting up home. Some people who's name we will not mention seem to have all the time for trivial pursuit. :D

  • Also I will take part provided my t-shirt is delivered wet.

  • As a matter of fact Kaya, its true... he did promise but didnt deliver .. also i surely didnt do any unpacking since i was watching desperate housewives :)

  • Professore forget ETISALAT blocking your BLOG; Mrs.M could very well put you out of circulation. You better get the drill out, and UNPACK real quick.

  • i just got an SMS from her with a serious ultimatum on tiding up the store or else ... :)

    So, KAYA - you wanna give the competition a shot? got many entries - but very very few got all correct :)

  • The one I'm really confused by is cmc/mbc - surely the mbc one is the original? But it's hard to imagine a regional company ripping off the logo of a prominent regional TV station.

    My favourite is Hassan's by a long mile.

  • i knew mcdonalds stole their logo!!! nobody believed me :o

    By Blogger शक्ती, at December 14, 2005 at 8:00 PM  

  • M... this is too embarrassing for me... Most of the rip-offs are Kuwaiti!

    By Blogger Zaydoun, at December 15, 2005 at 10:35 AM  

  • The copy cat cop is based in Kuwait - i am working on a second challenge with more regional ripoffs :)

  • Thank you for your note Anon@2.18.

    Its actually that story that triggered this whole competition thing.

    I contacted Louai Al Asfahani (Copy Cat Cop) from Paragon about it and he was very happy to share with me all these logos. He is also the competition judge.

    I will announce the result very soon..
