Skype Founders CAN Take on TV

A couple of days back, Om quoting a Business Week article stated that the Skype founders may be involved in distributing video content. At that I time I was wondered how would that happen given their arguably acrimonious relationship with the recording industry. Today comes the news that Sharman Networks has settled global lawsuits brought by the entertainment industry. I guess this telegraphs that the Skype founders may be close to negotiating whatever deal that is required for their Venice Project.

Hi Aswath,

It was nice to see you back on writing. Yea, you are right, I too had similar feelings about the settlements.

By the way peer-to-peer TV content as Om speculated is beyond my comprehension abilities. What is peer-to-peer TV?

Jonty:

I am not sure, probably we should ask him directly. But my guess is that the producer and consumer deal directly without an intermediary/distributor. After all there could be efficient micro-payment systems to facilitate such interaction.
