Hello i was making a c plus plus program and the program uses some files of a project licensed under GNU GPL Version 3.0
When the program( i created) completes and i license it under GPL v3.
Below is an excerpt from the license of Pawn Programming Language
The software toolkit "Pawn" (the compiler, the abstract machine and the support
routines) is copyright (c) 1997-2017 by ITB CompuPhase, and distributed under
the "Apache License" version 2.0, which is reproduced below, plus an exception
clause regarding static linking.
So like that my license should start like
The software (My Software Name) is copyright (c) 2022 by **My Name**, and distributed under the "GNU GPL License" version 3.0, which is found in file COPYING.txt.
So my question is in the above paragraph should i use My Name or "The Original Author of the some files which i have made use in my Project.
In individual files of the program, i learned that i have to put
Copyright (c) 2022 My Name
Copyright (c) 2004-2005 Original Author

So i repeat my question which is as the whole project can it be first licensed under my name with GPL v3 and subsequently show that it uses parts of Project created by Author licensed under GPL v3.
Edit 9. Feb 2022 The excerpt from Pawn programming language is shown as license file which the Pawn program uses. Pawn is licensed under Apache 2.0 that i know. Infact, i use Pawn source files in my project. I also make use of a project SA-MP, which is a multiplayer modification of game. This SA-MP is licensed under GPL v3. As that is so, my whole program can be licensed under GPL v3. The question is under whose name.-My name or SA-MP team. Can i license it under my name and give credits.
