To point out that Ebay has done absolutely NOTHING worthwhile with Skype appears to the going theme with most people when you ask them. Speaking for myself, I cannot really point to anything negative or positive that Ebay has done with Skype either.

Despite this, it now seems that Skype’s original founders want their baby back. Clearly, these individuals believe there is something worth having. And to be honest, I would agree that VoIP has a real future assuming ISPs do not decide to block anything that they do not have a vested stake in.

Skype would potentially be a great buy for those who knew something about VoIP and how to market it against stuff Vonage and Magic Jack. The real question is whether or not Ebay is really willing to part with Skype in this stage of the game?
