Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu This is kind of... Well, good news, I suppose? It depends on where you allegiances lie, but it seems like Ubuntu is warming up to the idea of using Qt to develop applications. It's no secret that Qt is a far more advanced development framework than Gtk+, so it only makes sense for Ubuntu - a GNOME/Gtk+ distribution - is looking at it.

Hiev, stop talking out of your back orifice. Nokia dropped their requirement for copyright assignment in May 2009.

Our goal with the new site is to make this process as simple and welcoming as possible, and that’s why we will no longer ask for copyright assignment.

http://labs.qt.nokia.com/2009/05/11/qt-public-repository-launched/

So even if Nokia would want to relicense, they would have to ask permission from every outside contributor or rewrite every outside contribution themselves. This makes the probability of a license change pretty low.
