Net2Phone is suing Skype, this time over a VoIP patent that was filed in 2000. The patent describes a method of exchanging IP addresses for the purpose of making a direct connection. While that sounds like a most rudimentary implementation of TCP/IP, it may go deeper than that. Net2Phone is one of many other VoIP providers recently, many with conflicting patents and conflicting stories, so odds are it will be many years before the dust finally settles for VoIP in general. Skype hasn't released a response yet.
