Sure. Red Hat has some commercial BK licenses; this has been public knowledge for a while. My recollection is fuzzy, but I believe that David Miller refused to use BK without a commercial license because of the restrictions in the free license.
I also know that at least one much larger company has bought commercial BK licenses for somewhat similar reasons, but I'd rather not say who.
