Looking at the management: https://investors.qt.io/governance/management/ only 2 came from Nokia, the rest are from Digia or have been hired since. To me, this explains the change of behavior by Qt's controlling entity.

In addition to Robert's correction, I want to mention two things.

1. In the glorious days of Trolltech and Qt 3.3.3, the Windows port, for 
example, of Qt was commercial-only. The open-source part of the dual 
license was GPL. Contributions from outside the company were nearby 

2. With snide remarks it's the same with jokes: if you gotta explain 
them, it's usually a sign they lack cunning.
