I've found freetype-gl library I want to use. It has new BSD license and I'd like to use it in my closed source commercial project.

Can I do it?

Read and understand the license terms. If you have legal questions, you should consult a lawyer. – M. Dudley Sep 19 '12 at 17:50

Did you read the license? Because it's pretty short and I think easy to understand. Unless your lawyer tells you otherwise, I'd say that yes, you can use the code, but you have to put their notice & disclaimer in your documentation (about box, whatever).
