Block all Skype Calls

IANAL, but I suspect that wouldn't be legal. A restraint of trade sort of thing.

If one carrier could legally block all calls from another carrier, what would stop, say, Verizon from blocking calls from Ooma? That sort of thing would allow a huge corporate giant to make it less attractive to switch to a small upstart competitor.

If you're a Premier user, I've found the blacklist feature works pretty well.

If ooma blocked all calls from one provider, there would certainly be neutrality issues involved but only if they did it without their customer's consent or by default. If the user had to manually go in and configure some filter to block out skype calls, the user would be within their right.
