All three are under the same license, which can be seen in
/opt/lsb/doc/{packagname}/Licence in an installed setup, and
in the build_env version control branch in the package subdirectory.

It's the BSD license, modified as allowed to indicate the
copyright holder as Linux Foundation, rather Regents of UC Berkeley.
