It seems that th ebay is having licensing issues with the people they
bought Skype from -- who still hold the licenses on critical internal
code.

"Oh oh, looks like Skype may be in some legal trouble. According to
Gizmag <http://www.gizmag.com/skype-joltid-litigation-shut-down/12390/>,
eBay is in a legal limbo with Joltid, the company eBay bought Skype from
for $2.6 billion in 2005 and might shut down unless a new software is
developed or an agreement is made to keep Skype alive. eBay was planning
to use Skype in an independent format to make a profitable return
instead of linking it to its auction site. But after a fall out with
Joltid over licensing issues and a legal battle, Skype may not exist."
