Um, yeah. Fictional round portals with runes around the edge predate the Stargate franchise by decades if not centuries (and the ones in Stargate have 39 or 36 glyphs on them, not nine). In any case, they can get away with it for the same reason Stargate can get away with it -- it's an old idea anyone can use without infringing on anyone else's IP. Your incredulity is kinda like someone who's amazed that a story of star-crossed lovers isn't immediately recognized by everyone as an obvious rip-off of West Side Story. :pNow, if you want to make exactly 39 glyphs in the shapes of constellations and say they're made out of naquadah, then you probably won't get away with it.
