Apparently China isn't the only place where popular logos seem to be mysteriously borrowed by other businesses. You don't have to search too far to find Tokyo security firm Yaroo's inspiration.
A camera crew visited Yaroo headquarters to inquire into the strange resemblance between it's logo and that of Japan's most popular search engine (that's right... Yahoo! is Japan's most popular search engine).
But the company spokesman denied that theirs was an imitation. The spokesman explained that the name “Yaroo” was a play on the Japanese word “Yaru,” which means “do.” Since they'll do anything. Including copy stuff, presumably. Ya-boo. [Pink Tentacle]
