Licensing questions regarding distribution of the raspberry pi platform bundled with proprietary software


I am creating a video streaming platform using the Raspberry Pi. I have wrote software that captures video and streams it to a server using OpenCV. The client then can monitor the video feed using a computer, or smartphone. OpenCV uses the FreeBSD license, and my code is running on Raspbian, a Debian distribution, using the raspberry pi 2. 

However, there are many other bundled packages that are included with the Raspbian image, such as python, java, and other software I'm not using. It is required to remove these packages before distributing the system, or is the Raspbian image itself GPL compliant?

What legal grounds do I need to adhere by to make sure that is legal for me to sell my raspberry pi system and software bundled with it to others? 

Thank you,
