Internal Issues Affecting Skype, Complaints from Taiwan

This report from Taipei makes reference to the overwhelming demand from manufacturers that Skype is facing. Some cite slowdowns in receiving licenses since eBay took over Skype. That's part of growing pains.

It can also be a sales strategy, called SRO (standing room only.) That's where you create the allusion of so much demand and interest that you can extract the price and terms you want.

Knowing the way the Skype folks think, and something about what is going on with them, I'd say it's a little of both.
