This arbitration clause doesn't seem that bad to me because they state that
small claims court is also an option (but that if you go to arbitration,
you give up your rights to small claims or a class action suit).

Title: Skype has binding arbitration

Topic: governance

Summary: If you and Skype cannot settle a dispute via informal negotiation
or small claims court, you agree that any other effort to resolve the claim
will be settled by arbitration. This means you give up the right to
litigate and/or be part of any class action before a judge or jury.

Score: 20 (mediocre)
