eldavojohn (898314) writes "Cheap internet phone services are under threat by China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology that has called them 'illegal internet phone services.' Although no actions have been specified the article notes that 'China says only major telecom companies have the right to offer services that link computers and telephones. Companies like Skype operate in a gray area, and experts say the notice is a warning to them not to grow too big.' Skype and similar services may join the censored ranks of Facebook, Twitter and YouTube in China."
