Before anyone starts filing copyright infringement claims concerning

in cyberspace they should run a utility like Eric Raymond's code
comparator against the CSRG code. It may open some eyes concerning
the true original creators of source modules in things unix-like.
BusyBox code included.

If the original creators licensed the code such that others
could make derivative works and did not restrict the license
under which those derivative works could be distributed then
it does not matter how those works got their start. Creators
of derivative works may file copyright infringement claims if
their license is not being honored.
