The FreeBSD Foundation is a non-profit organization which supports and represents the FreeBSD project. FreeBSD is a BSD Unix operating system; but it isn't Open Group certified UNIX(tm) primarily because people don't feel it's worth paying for such certification. 
As for the rest of the commentary, it's drifting wildly off-topic. If you want legal advice, you need to talk to your lawyer, not to random folks on a mailing list who aren't qualified to practice law.
: AIX, HP/UX, Mac OS X, and Solaris are the only certified UNIX(tm) 2003 platforms. None of the freely available BSDs (ie, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD, and so forth) are certified UNIX.
