hmmm. there seems to be some confusion as to what internet telephony is.

later in the article, they say:
      Ken Rutkowski, a CNET radio host who has aired his
      opposition to the bill, said he uses online telephone
      services like those of AOL's ICQ daily. 

i don't use ICQ, but i sorta understood it to be half between biff and irc.

how is ICQ considered an "online telephone service"?
