This point is more or less moot. The open source community has a fork of
QT that will be available forever. I actually hope that Nokia changes the
policy on the commercial QT, but it's actually not in their interests as a
separate QT would be major competition and developers would be able to
write commercial applications using the free QT without paying a fee to
Nokia/Trolltech. Keeping a unified QT means that free and commercial QT
applications remain compatible and the commercial version remains
relevant. Nokia's kind of stuck on this one.

Which policy is it you want them to change?

As of Qt 4.5, it is licensed under the LGPL, which means you can write
programs under any license and link against Qt, without the need to pay anyone
anything
