Yes, in the sense that you should talk to a lawyer. It's going to
depend on how clearly you separate your code from other people's code.

You can get further advice from this list, but be aware that this is
NOT binding legal advice. I am not a lawyer, nor are most of the
people here, and even if one of us is, we're not _your_ lawyer and may
not be in your jurisdiction.
