Licensing

I have written a plugin for the ljarchive program. It's nearly finished and once I've ironed out the last bug, I'll be releasing it on my website. The base program is licensed under the zlib/libpng license but I'm not entirely sure about that as it does give permission to use the code for commercial purposes (not that it's likely that anyone would).

So I have a few questions. First, what license should/can I use for my code? Am I obliged to use the zlib one and I am referencing libraries from the original project in mine? http://www.opensource.org/licenses/ links to tonnes of them - too many to think about. And then how do I go about applying that - do I need to c & p the notice into the source code somewhere? Is a link in the source to a page on my website sufficent?
