'Suntory Pulls Promotional Bags Bearing Designs of Tokyo Olympics Emblem Creator'

In his defense of his Tokyo Olympics logo design last week, Kenjiro Sano stressed that the design was "something made starting from zero" and that "as an art director I have never ripped anything off."  While some of the comparisons below are pretty doubtful at best, a few clearly make use of pre-existing images and one, the swimmer and shadow, looks undeniably like a copy of the original's style.  Their withdrawal from the Suntory promo campaign is a major blow to the credibility of Sano's Tokyo logo defense.
