If you were involved in ANY Beta event PRIOR to these "open Beta events" your NDA still exists until launch...This current event NOR any future event RELEASES you from THAT NDA.
This is WRONG:

Not my screenshot since i'm too lazy to make my own:
And you will be subject to a breach of contract + whatever else NcSoft chooses to lop on if you indeed participated previously and have violated your agreement.
Edit: Lawyer clarification ~ After raids this evening we discussed this and the way Anet has the GW2 splash screen worded, it applies to only these events and not the previous...So, you can discuss whatever happens in these events, freely...Anything before these events, negative...
The way you are putting this across is just going to confuse people. The question posed on Twitter was whether the NDA for the Alpha would lift this weekend.
Will the NDA for the Alpha lift with the NDA for the beta for this weekend?
No it will not. ~RB2
No. That NDA is permanent.
Are there plans to lift it in the coming months?
To clarify what Rubi said: the NDA for previous events will not lift. They will be in effect indefinitely. ^RB
The NDA for Alpha events is in effect. That means you cannot discuss or share screenshots of what you have seen or done in Alpha.
The NDA for this upcoming event is lifted. You can discuss the Beta weekend freely. If you participated in Alpha you can discuss what you do in this upcoming event (but not what you've done in past events) freely.
They have made this quite clear, even on their Twitter page.
I am running Chairty event while streaming for 48 hours tomorrow would it be against NDA if I left the login open tonight?
There is no NDA for the Beta Weekend Event. ^RB
There is no NDA for this Beta weekend. You just cannot discuss what you've done previously in Alpha. If you wasn't allowed to discuss anything to do with this weekend having been in Alpha they would have made it quite clear and direct that you wasn't allowed to.
I hope that makes more sense.
Oh and if you're in Alpha, or have been in Alpha, you shouldn't even be telling anyone here you're in Alpha. You're breaking NDA. ;)
