tl;dr: I want to use Nokia PC Connectivity API 3.2 example code as base for an open source project.
I am considering to spend some time on implementing that long overdue sync solution between Nokia PC Suite and Mozilla Sunbird/Lightning (making this a Windows-only solution, but thats what i, and probably a few other people, need). My current plan would be to write a plugin for Sunbird, and a C++ glue code .dll that is [scriptable] via the Mozilla XPConnect interface and heavily based on the PIMNavigator example application packaged with the Nokia PC Connectivity API 3.2. Nokia has placed the following license on this piece of source code:
Since this would require me to, err, print out all the code in that very handy Visual Studio project and start coding from scratch, I would like to request a writ of consent from Nokia to use the example code as base for my work.Copyright (c) 2007 Nokia Corporation.

If I go ahead with it, I will release my product as open source and free of charge (not forgoing a Paypal donate button, but still), so the license I'd like to request is to a private person and for developing a non-profit product. After looking around on Forum Nokia, I haven't been able to locate the right place to apply for this kind of license, thus I'm asking for pointers from the community here. Replies from Nokia officials are highly appreciated as well, of course
