Having looked at your theoretical examples before they get delinked, I really doubt that there are grounds for complaint from either party. Both are three column pages; both use the outer columns for ads and the inner one for content. That's about as far as the similarities go.
The fonts and pt size are not the same, and neither are the content sections. Ad layouts are also different - both have stylings that are unique. Each uses a stylised form of subhead that is not replicated by the other.
I would say that one may have been rather closely inspired by the other, but that's all.
