Of course.  As I mentioned, most FSF software such as Emacs is copyright 
by the Free Software Foundation.

I know for a fact that the zsh sources are copyright by various individual
contributors because the "Zsh Development Group" is not a legal entity for
copyright purposes.  In fact, zsh isn't even distributed under the GPL, it
has its own license.

Similarly the apache http server and most of its components use the Apache
Foundation's license, not the GPL, and nearly everything related to Perl 
is available under the "Artistic License" as well as the GPL.
