Seconded.

Sure you can (use Qt in commercial projects) -- you just need
to purchase Professional or Enterprise licenses from trolltech
as per http://www.trolltech.com/purchase/qtpricing.html &c.

Seconded.  But I think "normal" commercial projects can most
likely also afford to invest in Professional or Enterprise Qt
licenses.  Qt licensing IS going to be a problem in some gray
areas, such as commercial products that are worked on only in
a very part-time way by a number of developers, in which case
the licensing fees -- that appear reasonable compared to the
other costs involved with full-time development -- may well
become a too-large fraction of the development investment.
