Originally, yes. Currently, no.

"Openbox is a free window manager for the X Window System, licensed under the GNU General Public License. Openbox was originally derived from Blackbox 0.65.0, but has been totally rewritten in the C programming language and, since version 3.0, is not based upon any code from Blackbox."

Ubuntu still distributes Openbox 3.3. There's a world of difference from 3.3 to 3.4.
