That is a perfect example of duplicate content. Google will choose which page it considers to be the "main" page and filter out the duplicates. To prevent this from happening you need to use canonical URLs. This will tell Google which page to include in its index and which pages to associate with the main page as a duplicate. PageRank and backlinks to the duplicate URLs are counted towards the main page.
