Re: The iPhone SDK and free software: not a match

You are correct in your assertion, but the NDA has an 'escape' clause. If the disclosed information is available, elsewhere, publicly, it is no longer protected by the terms of the NDA. That you can get at the SDK with just an Apple ID creates an argument in my mind that Apple is de facto releasing the SDK's API information publicly. That places it outside the protections of the NDA.
