Provided of course the license for such code allowed them to use it.
With literally hundreds of FOSS licenses floating around and new ones
being written each week, and considering few if any of these have been
tested in court to they are in the end largely speculative, unless the
license chosen were unusually simple (like X11) it would require 10
hours of paid legal consultation for every hour of programming saved by
such code. ;)
