I encountered a open source project that is released under GPL and uses
Boost - that's OK, because GPL and Boost license should be compatible.

But the developers of those project copied code from Boost into their own
The question is, is this new library now GPL or Boost license?

Additionally, because they copied the code from several Boost files into
one, they mixed up copyright statements. As a result, some people get
copyright on code they never wrote.

Seams to me that's not correct.
