I think it depends.  Here's a clause from the Boost license page:

"Does the copyright and license cover interfaces too? The conceptual 
interface to a library isn't covered. The particular representation 
expressed in the header is covered, as is the documentation, examples, 
test programs, and all the other material that goes with the library. A 
different implementation is free to use the same logical interface, 
however. Interface issues have been fought out in court several times; 
ask a lawyer for details."
