Qt SDK icons.



  • Hi. Just a quick question. There are hundreds of icons distributed with the QT SDK. Does anyone know what licence do they fall under?


  • Moderators

    Really that many? I know in the days of Nokia SDK they were copyrighted by Nokia. Right now they (but that is just my guess) are copyrighted to Qt Project and copylefted under LGPL/ GPL/ FDL. Unless you find another license text hidden somewhere in the repo ;)

    Just to be clear here: IANAL. Ask Digia if in doubt, or possibly wait here a bit longer, maybe someone more knowledgeable will uncover the secrets for us.


  • Moderators

    There might also be trademark issues involved with (some of) the icons, in addition to the copyright issues.


  • Moderators

    Ah yes, I think I might have confused the two to some extent.
