Well, it's not as if this is somehow completely unknown information. Conti was specifically asked to ape the temp track as close as possible, and the director actually wanted him to get even closer had Conti not put on the brakes and said that would cross the line into outright plagiarism. And you know what the irony is? The entirety of the "Glenn's Flight" cue doesn't even appear in the film but was replaced by the temp track anyway! But yeah, a lot of those similarities were entirely due to Kaufman's meddling than from the composer intentionally stealing from the temp track.
