Skype Founders Seek Injunction to Halt Sale - WSJ.com

Maybe it should have been called Jilted instead of Joltid; I’m still amazed eBay purchased Skype in the first place, knowing how this could play out

In their motion for the preliminary injunction, Messrs. Zennstrom and Friis claim Mr. Volpi took confidential information about Skype's "global index" software, a technology owned by their company Joltid Ltd. that it has licensed for use in the core of Skype's peer-to-peer telecommunications system. The motion for the injunction was filed by Joltid and Joost.

The plaintiffs have asked the U.S. District Court in Delaware to hear the case for a preliminary injunction on Nov. 2. They are asking the court to enjoin Index and Mr. Volpi from continuing to participate in the buyout deal and Skype's strategic planning until the case is resolved.
