Submission + - Do (legally and/or morally) NDA expire?

An anonymous reader writes: I just found in eBay a prototype of a VGA card that never made it to the market (a Pyramid 3-D, the father of the Glaze 3-D which also didn't make it). Assuming there was originally a NDA, and assuming it doesn't have a specific expiration date, is there a moral date? Is it legal to sell prototypes of things, even after it's clear that they will never be commercially viable?
