But they had the same title....

You can't copyright a title. And it's even harder to come up with a unique title these days, when publishers seem to adore one-word titles.

Over at Publishers Weekly a bookstore owner talks about what happened when she ordered three cartons of Laurie Halse Anderson's Chains for a school and got instead three cartons of a very adult book about S&M by the same name. [At least she didn't have them shipped to the school!]
