Like you need to get approval from the Qt company when not having been 
Open Source before - it is the basic right of any seller not to sell.

But your statement implies, that the Qt Company is blacklisting users 
because of contributing to Open Source projects. Am I already 
blacklisted because of offering code under an Open Source license ?

How does this all fit to the Qt project, that is in parts based on 
contributions from Open Source developers. Am I invited to contribute to 
the code base, while not being allowed to buy my own contribution 
afterwards ?
