[gdal-dev] about the license

Hi everyone,

I am developing a free software that works with the awesome java 
bindings of gdal and I have a question about the license and how to use 
it correctly.
This is the first time that I develop a software which is available for 
download and I want to do this correctly.

This is what I have so far.
1.) I have included the gdal.jar, all the required .dll files and the 
data directory in the program folder.
2.) I put a copy of the license into the program folder.
3.) In the program, you can press a button "about" go to "third-party 
libraries" and read about gdal, the license and links to www.gdal.org

Is this enough to meet the requirements of the license?

I know this is not really a technical question, but I read a lot of 
different things about this topic and I am feeling pretty insecure.
