Although a settlement seems to be in place — with Skype founders Niklas Zennstrom and Janus Friis receiving a 10-percent equity stake in Skype, plus two board seats, and with Index Ventures and Mike Volpi getting banished from the deal — a formal announcement including all the pertinent details has yet to be delivered by the legal gods to us mere mortals.
It shouldn’t be long, though.
No matter how much they settle, they always get more money from VC. They are just expanding very fast. I think its more of milking from them than really curtailing Skype.
