comment How to license a script/package if it uses multiple 3rd-party components with different licenses?
By the way, there is a newer version of the google visualization library I use which is under GPL, so that could make things easier but it's harder to use so I sticked with the older version. But since SimplifiedBSD is compatible with GPL as said above it means no real difference license-wise. What do you think of all that (3 comments) ?

I'm guessing that what I need to do is something like this: programmers.stackexchange.com/a/75464/43511 (2nd answer to the above question I linked). I could license my program under GPL (and the BSD library is OK to be included as noted in your answer) and then specifically mention in the LICENSE file what other 3rd party stuff I use in the package and their own licenses. Something like this example: svn.soapboxsnap.com/svn/trunk/LICENSE.txt

Thanks for the answer. I searched about it and the specific BSD license that the google visualization library I use is released under is the BSD 2-clause license aka Simplified/FreeBSD license. So I guess I'm covered at least for this specific issue. This question has more info on BSD + GPL compatibility: programmers.stackexchange.com/questions/75436/…
