Skype Not Available Yet In Canada, Being Blocked in Germany

Poor Skype. On the heels of their biggest launch ever since their inception, with the release of the iPhone client, a licensing issue around a piece of software, known as a Codec is preventing them from making the App available in Canada.

That's the good news, as that's just a matter of negotiation and figuring out what's a fair amount to pay.

Tom Keating has the news about the Canadian Skype predicament and a way around it.

Now for the bad news. In Germany Deutsche Telekom has taken steps to prevent Skype from being used on the iPhone. The rub here is the company actually runs and controls most of the telephony and data network technology and access in Germany.
