Microsoft fended off a challenge to its $8.5 billion takeover of messaging service Skype when Europe's second-highest court ruled against claims by rival Cisco that the 2011 deal would harm competition.

The decision on Wednesday means Microsoft can continue to market Skype's video calls to consumers and businesses without making any concessions to Cisco or others offering similar products.Court Rules Against Cisco's Challenge Over Microsoft/Skype Deal [reuters.com]

In my experience a person-to-person Skype call doesn't compare to a dedicated hardware videoconferencing system call. The article doesn't go into the specific arguments that most influenced the case, but I'd believe that would have been one of the bigger ones.
