What kind of license can a Geant4 application use?

I currently use MIT license in my applications GEARS and MinGLE. I strive to use only standard Geant4 components in MinGLE. There is some simple extension of text geometry description in GEARS. Is there any recommendation from the collaboration on the license of applications? I read https://geant4.org/download/license#license, but am still not clear what rule I shall follow for applications.

Other than clauses 4 and 5 in regard to patents, I believe (IANAL) that you are free to choose any compatible license (and that should be most if not all of the most common ones, like MIT) for your application code.
