Is it required to publish the code that was written in OpenCV-Python free version, if used in a commercial application. By commercial application I mean an application sold for profit.

If I wish to sell the application developed for profit, am I supposed to pay something and what isthe process in this case.

I read the License agreement but i was unable to understand it completely.

should be no problem, as long as you avoid patented code, like surf & sift, or the mcs cascade files(cc license)

depend if the code is patented. Mostly yes, but it also depend what for kind code when you google for the functions you will find the licence. Most companies use OpenCV for commercial applications, but donate sometime a little.(what my company does)
