The other part of this is that unless you have obtained your copy of Asterisk
under another license from Digium, your license of Asterisk is under the GPL,
so any codecs you distribute must be distributed with the source code to your
modifications (i.e. the source code to your codec), with no restrictions above
and beyond those specified in the GPL on the distribution thereof.  This means
that if you distribute your codec outside of your organization, the NDA is
either unenforceable, as it conflicts with the license under which Asterisk
was provided to you, or the NDA invalidates your license to use Asterisk.
