Guangming Founder Information Technology (Beijing) Ltd. Co. (GMF) is a joint venture between Guangming Daily and Founder Information Industry Group (FIIG), which develops mobile internet businesses and merges the media and the information industries. Skype partners with GMF to provide access to Skype for Chinese customers, using a modified version that follows Chinese regulations.
It's the same Skype users in China have come to know; the contacts and account details will stay just as they are. Skype's partnership with GMF merely updates the look of Skype, as well as a few payment options (for example, GMF will now process your subscription payments).
