Zeta It appears that Marcus Overhagen, a well-known BeOS developer, has been recieving threats from YellowTAB. Marcus writes: "Using an alleged NDA (non disclosure agreement) breach, he promises to undertake everything that is possible to sue me. He claimes that even this mail is protected by the NDA that I signed with Yellowtab, but I'm certain that it doesn't apply here. At the end, he says that a copy of that mail was sent to their lawyer, who is now checking legal measures against me."

I don't know where you got this from, but it's not true.
yellowTab had no influence whatsoever on Haiku this far. I am not aware of a single patch sent to us on behalf of yellowTab (even though they promised to do so, so this might change in the future).
