Panama begins blocking IP ports

In an apparent attempt to stem telephone company revenue losses due to Internet telephony, the government of Panama has decreed that 24 UDP ports be blocked by all Internet service providers.

Okay, this makes me mad. I'm pretty confident that this won't stay in place. Too much business is done over IP Telephony these days. Those call centers in Latin America that service the U.S. probably go through Panama. Pretty lame move by Panama, in my opinion.
