Perhaps you should make yourself acquainted with the concept of
"cleanroom reimplementation".  The whole purpose of which is avoiding to
get in contact with original code.  If a cleanroom implementation
"incidentally" creates identical code, it is not subject to the original
copyright.  That's different from patents.

That might help your confusion.
