PyQT is GPL for now, but Qt itself is available under the LGPL as is
PySide. Eventualy PySide, which tracks the PyQT API, will supplant it

developer licenses are very afordable at only a few hundred dollars.
If a commercial project can't aford that, it's got problems.

Only you can know enough to make an informed decision. Wx does look
more usable than last time I used it for a project and is a fine
option too, for me though QT is the gold standard against all others
are measured, and generaly found wanting.
