By "commercial" I wonder if you mean "proprietary"?

Either way, take a look at the copyright file you get with skype, as
an example of a package containing a mix of proprietary (most of it)
and free software (the debian directory) parts.

Pastebinned here in case you don't have it installed

I took this from /usr/share/doc/skype/copyright - you can look at
other copyright files in /usr/share/doc/*/copyright and examine them
too to learn from them..

I have quite a few on my system.  I imagine many of them are similar.
