I think BSD says that your code can be used also in proprietary software.

Why? You may want to think about this point. Think this, if somebody
else changes your code he/she is not 'stiling' your code, you will
have the credit for what you did, and even *you* could use the
modified version if you find it is better for what you may want to do
in the future. Who knows?
