Open source + commercial

I'm a bit new to software licenses.

I've investigated through all the usual OSI-approved software licenses and I 
still haven't found what I'm looking for.

I thought the QPL would fit, but after reading it carefully, it doesn't seem 

What I'm looking for is a Free Software license, that enables anyone to 
use/modify/publish the source code, but only for non-commercial products. And 
if anybody wants to use it in a commercial product, they have to pay someone.

Does something like this exist ? Maybe it was the other Qt license which may 
not be OSI-approved ?

thanx in advance
