Ok, i see...You said "All parts of the software have to be licensed
compatibly with the GPL". What if, let's say, my application's GUI is
made by Qt (Open Source edition that is indeed under GPL license) and
in this application i use some module(s) that i bought from some other
company and they aren't under GPL, do you see any implication to
this ?

Thanks you all again!
