Veoh Files Chapter 7 Bankruptcy

With the recession and legal troubles of its own, the video website Veoh has now filed for bankruptcy. Co-founder Dmitry Shapiro announced that the economic climate and a 2007 legal battle with Universal Music Group have affected the site and led to the need to file for  Chapter 7 bankruptcy. The site has had to lay off several employees in the last year, and despite the audience of over 28 million users per month, the site will be closing down due to bankruptcy, although it is currently still live.
