It's not even funny -- it's not "spyware", it's just a traffic sniffer.

Comment Re:Nokia did not sell Qt (Score 1) 193

Nokia did not sell Qt to Digia. They sold the Qt commercial license business to Digia. Digia will now sell Qt licenses to companies like Adobe or Google who want to make closed-source modifications to Qt.

What I don't understand is who is going to own the actual copyright for the Qt. If Nokia will, than they just effectively outsource the customers service to Digia and that's it. If Digia will own the copyright, it means they sold Qt to Digia.
The reports seem to imply the former.
