Christo & Jeanne-Claude vs. AT&T

Christo and Jeanne-Claude, detail of 'Valley Curtain, Rifle, Colorado', 1970-72

American mobile phone company AT&T’s recent advertisment (below) copies the work of American artists Christo and the late Jeanne-Claude so overtly that they’ve had to include a disclaimer at the end of their commercial.  Surely the BBDO advertising ‘creatives’ behind the ad should offer them a cut of their fee too.
