You cannot choose a different license (either more or less restrictive,
doesn't matter) for the code. You are welcome to *sell* it, however if you
do, any buyer has all the rights that the GPL gives them and may do
anything that that allows, including redistribution. And if you make it
available for download without purchase, it must be under the GPL.
