What are the implications in the following scenario:

Person A contributes completely original code X
Independent reviewer compares X code to copyrighted code Y from $BIGCORP and
finds them extremely similar

Now, I'm not saying that Person A was lying, they just solved the problem
in the same way. Does that mean that Person A's contribution has to be
scrapped and rewritten?
