Not necessarily.


II.E.2. Idea-Expression Merger and Scènes À Faire

When there are only a limited number of ways that a 
concept or idea can be expressed, there is little 
difference between the idea and its expression, and 
it is therefore said that the two have "merged." 
When this happens, the limited number of ways of 
expressing the idea are not entitled to copyright 
protection because, in essence, that would be 
protecting the idea, something outside the scope of 
copyright. The merger doctrine means that even if 
things are substantially similar, or even identical, 
there might not be a copyright infringement.
