The entangled legal battle over Skype is finally finished.

The final terms : Skype founders Niklas Zennstr√∂m and Janus Friis join the investment group, getting 14% of the company in exchange for a “significant capital investment.” Silver Lake, Andreessen Horowitz and other investors get 56% of the company.¬† eBay keeps 30%, and receives $1.9 billion in cash.

Index Ventures is the loser. It is no longer part of the deal.
