CDNs should pay eyeball networks, too.

So a CDN made the mistake of attempting to monetize an existing
peering arrangement without first having a signed peering arrangement
in place for the existing peering with a  Mutual NDA  prohibiting any
dissemination details of any of their communications/ future
negotiations/etc of peering arrangement or traffic exchanged to
unrelated third parties??

The lack of a NDA that would prohibit identifying a CDN and their
e-mail notification of depeering,  whether their name was mentioned or
not,   sounds quite  un-Tier1  like to me.
