The license of a Debian component may not restrict any party
from selling or giving away the software as a component of an
aggregate software distribution containing programs from several
different sources. The license may not require a royalty or other fee
for such sale.
You may also use the Qt toolkit to create reusable components (such as
libraries) provided that you accept the terms above, and in addition that:
- Qt is not distributed as an integral part of your components.
The license must allow modifications and derived works, and must
allow them to be distributed under the same terms as the license of
the original software.
You may copy this version of the Qt toolkit provided that the entire
archive is distributed unchanged and as a whole, including this notice.

program in a specific field of endeavor. For example, it may not
restrict the program from being used in a business, or from being used
for genetic research.
If you are paid to develop something with Qt or it is a part of your job
