 Reply from Fedora Legal

 It is permitted, but it is worth mentioning that because of the
 "advertising" clause, this license is GPL incompatible, which may cause
 problems with other software.

 The original author of the BSD license (Regents of the University of
 California) has stopped using the advertising clause, and has withdrawn
 it from all code for which they are the copyright holder. I would
 strongly advise the NanoTCAD developer to also drop the advertising
