Usage of sample apps in proprietary commercial applications


I see that there are a lot of useful examples for Cascades Development at https://developer.blackberry.com/cascades/sampleapps/ and some classes in those samples can be fully reused in my application (like ImageLoader, Repeater, etc). These samples are distributed under Apache 2.0 license - can anyone please confirm that I'm able to reuse code from those examples in my proprietary non-open-source application? What are the additional actions/restrictions required from me if I reuse such examples code? Thanks
