AFAIK, it is difficult to judge copyright infringement from mere
binaries, unless it is a byte for byte binary copy, it which case
there is no need to look into sources to conclude copyright
infringement. But if the source code has not been disclosed, then it
would have to be summoned, and if there is a failure to produce it,
in most jurisdictions an "adverse inference" would be drawn against
the person so refusing to produce.
Simply running "strings" on the binary, or inspecting it with a hex
editor, should give some more information.
