Via All things Digital, we find out that Ziff Davis is filing for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy.
Ziff Davis, the troubled trade media company which sold off its enterprise division last year, is now close to filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York, we have learned.
