  As far as I understood, the agreement between Toonka (in that time, the
Monica's company) and the developers was
  that the whole rights of the project would belong to Toonka, even when
the chosen license was GPL.
  KTooN wasn't a "normal" free software project. It wasn't about a
community sharing and creating code, it was about a
  company working on a free source code application.

  Note: when I did the change of license from v2 to v3, I did it with the
support/knowledge of Monica.

  I understand if I have to talk to Monica to deal with this issue, but
legally, should I talk to the old developers?
