Zeta Heise, an influential German tech website, stirred the BeOS community up today by reporting that YellowTAB filed for bankruptcy [German]-- however, this bankruptcy was not filed from within YellowTAB, but by a 3rd party, possibly to damage YellowTAB. This news quickly spread accross BeOS related websites, but none of them could confirm the story. I emailed Bernd Korz, YellowTAB's CEO, and he confirmed that indeed someone from outside the company filed for bankruptcy, but that YellowTAB is in fact not bankrupt. Bernd could not disclose full details yet, as the company was still discussing this with its lawyers. Bernd did confirm that within a few days, the company will release an official statement concerning the issue.

It's not actually frozen cash accounts. It's as follows: YellowTab is forbidden to access their accounts. The court sends a such called "Insolvenzverwalter" (insolvency administrator) who is responsible at first. YellowTab are able to pay bills etc. using their accounts, but every money going out of these accounts has to be confirmed by this Insolvenzverwalter person who's one and only job is to search for best methods to get the company out of the mess and operate financially stable again. If there is any need of such actions.
