The Snitch Cartel: Origins, a show airing on popular streaming platform Netflix has been accused of stealing artwork from GTA V.

There have been several instances when movies, TV shows, music videos and much more have derived inspirations from pop culture. This includes the usage of popular one-liners, wardrobe ideas and such.

However, there have also been times when the makers of a show have gone ahead and outright copied something, often times, without permission. In other words, they stole it.

This seems to have been the case for one of streaming platform Netflix’s latest offering, The Snitch Cartel: Origins. Eagle eyed fans singled out some artworks in the opening credits of the show which looked uncannily similar to the loading images from GTA V.

Intellectual Property has always been a murky topic. And while some might excuse this incident by claiming thatImitation is the highest form of flattery, stealing can never be justified.

It has been over a month since the show came out and fans of GTA V have been steadily pointing out the similarities between the artworks of the two. A Redittor even posted several images which point towards the striking similarities between the two.

Fans have been urging Take Two to take legal action against the makers of the show and Netflix. However, the company hasn’t responded yet. The company has been very prompt in taking action against previous unauthorized usage of their Intellectual Properties, especially those concerning GTA. Now it only remains to be seen whether the makers do have permission or a rock solid excuse for the similarities between the two.

El Cartel de Los Sapos: El Origen (The Snitch Cartel: Origins) is a Columbian show that is streaming now on Netflix. The show is based on a book of the same name by Andrés López López. It follows brothers Leonardo Villegas (Juan Pablo Urrego) and Emanuel Villegas (Sebastian Osorio) who run their own drug cartel in the city of Cali.
