Yes, it can.
If two of those companies "modify" the software at all, even down to
trivial stuff like changing the splash screen and/or packaging
different templates with it which would have been anathema to the
Microsoft of yesteryear but an easy choice to make when faced with
pacman^Hcancer^Hcommunism^Hanarchy^HLinux, they can be purported to be
different products from different software "development" vendors.
