If you use a PyQt source package you will need to get an appropriately
licensed copy of Qt.

If you use the GPL binary installer for Windows then it includes a copy of
the LGPL version of Qt. Your application license must be compatible with
the GPL and the LGPL.

The license you use with your application must be compatible with the Qt
license and the PyQt license you choose.
