The attack of the infographics clones

The folks at El País have sent me another case of infographics cloning. The first image below is what El País published on June 2, 2009. The second one, by Le Figaro, appeared on June 3. Apparently, El País was credited as a “source” in the inside pages of Le Figaro. As I wrote a while ago, that's enough for me if anyone wants to copy my own graphics (I think that originality is a bit of a myth,) but this is too extreme, isn't it?
