Yes of course. You cannot use in your application any code that is covered by the GPL (or similar license). And you cannot use in your application any code that is covered by proprietary licenses (in most cases).

You can link with libraries covered by the LGPL (though you must provide a way for your users to relink with other versions of the library, easiest done by dynamic rather than static linking).

However, there are good reasons for not distributing software with such a restrictive license, especially to paying customers.
