Qt Since the web has a tendency to overstate things: no, Nokia is not selling Qt. Today, Nokia announced that Digia will acquire the Qt Commercial software licensing and professional services business from Nokia. So I repeat: Nokia is not selling Qt.

<quote>Nokia signed the contract, and that binds Nokia.</quote>
The contract mentions transfer of copyright, which did not happen here. That's why I ask. If Nokia were bought the copyright would transfer, here it didn't.

What if the actual development work is done by another company? Are they still bound?

Very interesting question, I would also like to know the answer to it. I guess by "they" you mean the other company, right?

I mean both "Is the other company bound?" and "Does this count as a violation of the agreement for Nokia?" If not A then either B or hello loophole.
