Is there an interest on this list in learning about the business implications of going LGPL using the Trolltech example?

Trolltech's acquisition by Nokia allowed it to add the LGPL license option and then continue conducting business for the next 3 years. If you look at the aggregate business over that time it seems a useful question to ask what happened - Did the initial dramatic license revenue drop turn into growth later because of broader use?

Is this a topic people would be interested in and find useful?
