RSS Logo Rip. Is this lazy design work?

Is this logo for a fire detection company a direct rip of the below RSS feed logo? I'll let you be the judge.

Company Logo in question:

Original RSS Logo:
How could such a close cousin of the RSS logo be produced naturally? Is it really possible that a designer has gazed at the screen for long enough, not realizing that his unconscious has absorbed this image only to regurgitate it as a logo for a client? Or worse, has someone sat down and found a way to use the logo without changing it at all (except rotating it 90 degrees)? At least change the colour or something, geeez!
