Some of the agreements were more limited (and more sneaky) than that. For example (going by the evidence of the Adobe no-hire list) Adobe's no-hire agreement with Apple was "Do not pro-actively solicit candidates from Apple. However, if a candidate from this company applies to a position, you can pursue." and many of its other agreements were of that nature. It still sucks for you if you were (say) a SAP employee who could have had a better job at Adobe but weren't unhappy or ambitious (or suspicious) enough to be sending out your resume.
