It's not entirely academic what do you with your legal copy of a program in the 
darkness of your room... :-) after all, what if "you" were legal corporation or 
entity, using it for your "private" use and making money from it?

The GPL doesn't care.

The QPL, reflecting Trolltech's concerns, does. Look at 4c and especially 6c. 
Obviously they are concerned about companies getting a legal albeit free copy, making 
changes and/or incorporating into their own proprietary products and neither releasing 
the code nor paying them, essentially defeating their revenue model.
