:) How should i know. This is VIA.
They also made it GPL specific. Under that linux addendum of theirs,
you're allowed to do everything you want with any other free software
That suggests that this is plain stupidity and that the people who wrote
that document were told some very superficial things about the GPL, and
set out to mitigate its main directive.

Right, the times i was handed an nda directly i always got handed both
standard documents. The NDA itself pretty much tells you you're not
allowed to disclose anything, the addendum tells you that you're allowed
to disclose everything, except that bit with gpled code VIA handed you
