Blocking Skype in Mexico?

SkypeIn is marching in, 100 million copies have been downloaded and there are tons of companies making products that are Skype-happy. Except one tiny problem, and that’s on the horizon. As per James Enck, some Mexican users are complaining that Mexican giant Telmex’s ISP subsidiary Prodigy might be blocking access to domain www.skype.com. “I guess that’s one way to stop it – prevent people from even going there in the first place,” says Enck. I kind of agree, and I feel the incumbents are going to react with the usual – hammer-instead-of-scalpel approach on Skype as well.
