No Skype for iPhone in Canada

This is something interesting that I just came accross. Our friends in Canada can't use the Skype app on their iPhone. It's already gotten over 2 million downloads worldwide, but a Canadian patent over the Skype codec seems to be causing the problem.

There's been a lot of speculation about what may have been holding it up, but Apple, Rogers (the Canadian carrier), and the CRTC (regulations board) all stated that they had nothing to do with the holdup. Hopefully this issue will get resolved soon so that everyone in the world can get in on the Skype for iPhone goodness.
