ebay's sale of skype to original founders is big rip off--called low balling. in real extate terms
If ebay sells skype to skype founders you will have a big rip off of ebay. First skype founders get more money than skype was worth when they sold it to ebay and now they want to buy it back at a billion dollars less than what they sold it for. What a great deal for the skype founders and what a rip of ebay. Ebay would be crazy to make such a deal. Ebay would be giving these guys a billion bucks for nothing. I'll take that deal and so will every one else who could get such a deal.. When ebay made the deal they had less than 100 million subscrbers of skype now they have 400 million subscribers. And ebay says its a great stand alone business. Why would they be willing to sell such a business at such a low price. If this were a real estae deal they would be calling this low balling the seller. That's stupid.. Ebay should keep it.
