Wow. I just randomly looked at like 5 or 6 classes with the same name and they are pretty much identical. At most one or two functions are changed.

You can argue that it's only the interface, but header files are copyrighted too. Even if you change the definitions you can't just take the header file for a fairly complicated class and copy it verbatim. Furthermore, if the header files are the same it's pretty likely that the implementations are the same too. Someone would have to compare disassembly to be sure though
