Of course you must show the license, but requiring all derived works  
to link to your web page in a readme or about box is something  
completely different. This sort of advertising clause is in fact  
incompatible with both the GPL and the LGPL. That's why the  
advertising clause in the new XFree86 license was so controversial,  
and why the X.Org fork was created.
