Euh ? Where would it say that ? And is the : 

  The Compiler is distributed under the terms of the Q Public License
  version 1.0 (included below).
  As a special exception to the Q Public Licence, you may develop
  application programs, reusable components and other software items
  that link with the original or modified versions of the Software
  and are not made available to the general public, without any of the
  additional requirements listed in clause 6c of the Q Public licence.

Not clear enough ?
