More Worries For VoIP Vendors - Forbes.com

More Worries For VoIP Vendors - Forbes.com: "Vonage CEO Jeffrey Citron says he's not particularly worried about widespread port blocking, but acknowledges that the risk 'has obviously moved up a bit.' He expects the FCC to continue to discourage port blocking and anticipates future legislation that will make it explicitly illegal across all kinds of networks.
Besides, the Brand X decision actually helps VoIP providers, says Citron, by strengthening the position that they are not a telecommunications service and, therefore, should not be subject to the same rules, taxes and fees as traditional phone calls. "
