Ebay to Announce Sale of Skype Today

Posted by Chris DeMarco on Tuesday, September 1st, 2009 at 9:27 am

According to the New York Times, Ebay will be announcing the sale of Skype to private investors today. Ebay acquired Skype back in 2005, but as it turns out, VoIP doesn’t have a whole lot to do with online auctions and eCommerce. A lot of the details aren’t too certain yet, but we do know that Google won’t be involved as it walked away from a deal a few months ago, and that it’s very likely that Netscape’s founder Marc Andreesen will be involved in the deal.

Get the rest of the details in the New York Times article here.
