Canada Gets Skype for iPhone, Not.
Tom does some handy investigative work and finds out that Skype has been banned from use in Canada due to a legal issue around what seems to be a codec related patent.
I then asked if other countries were affected or if it was just Canada and was informed it was just Canada. When asked whose patent it was or what category it involved (i.e. mobile VoIP), the representative told me, “I can’t go into many more details other than it’s codec related.”
That really bites. I was hoping to do some testing via Skype for iPhone on the new Skype for SIP on Response Point.
