The main problem is, that there is no much SIP based competition for skype on the desktop market, so they can acquire a big market share quickly with this movement. Most of the SIP based softphone looks like from the past century. There are a few good softphone that could be a viable solution near skype, for example Mizu softphone but unfortunately near skype/msn/yahoo marketing there is no much chance to become popular for small companies.

I am a developer for Mizu softphone ( ), that is a VoIP client which are used by several providers around the world. 2 from 3 of our customers ask for "modified" version because their ISP block VOIP. And we are giving out our voip software with random port changes, TLS/SRTP encryption or just some proprietary encryption and VPN tunnel capabilty. I don't really understand, how they think their tricks can restrict VOIP. The article say: " the restriction on ISPs to connect directly to international carriers". But as i know, global carriers has endless list of IP addresses :)
