I think WMF people could take an action against it, no need to ponder over this stupidity!

The Logo is certainly a copyvio, but the text and content gets off easier. Its a simple matter of asking them to license text under CC-BY-SA.

No Swaroop, the logo is a modification version of original Wikipedia Odia logo and can't be in a CC-BY-SA, the admin has to remove it by all chances as it is a WMF's copyrighted logo and can't be used anywhere except foundation's work.

As I understand it, the text is not licensed to WMF, but we've definitely got a case with the logo.

+1 Swaroop, even the UI is somewhat similar but doesn't cause any harm, but the name "Wikipedia" and the usage of the logo is not permitted.

I think the UI is just mediawiki.  Srikant, can you send them a polite mail explaining why they cannot use Wikipedia and other Wikimedia related trademarks?  That works most of the time.
