I actually like the Ghostscript/Aladdin license, which was essentially
GPL-after-one-year. I was their attorney at the time and I fully supported
their business and licensing model. (For what it is worth, so did my
client's friend, Richard Stallman, who apparently considered this a
reasonable way then to end up with GPL software.)
That is not quite accurate. I considered it a problematical
compromise. At least it gave us free software after a year.

Skype: No way! That's nonfree (freedom-denying) software.
