RockYou buys three Playdom games from Disney to keep them runningSocial game publisher RockYou has purchased three major Playdom social games from Disney so that it save them from being shut down.

Mobile-social gaming firm RockYou lays off 65 peoplegMobile social game RockYou is laying off 65 people, or 18 percent of its staff, over the next three months, GamesBeat confirmed today.
The San Mateo, California-based company has been steadily expanding and contracting as its business needs change. RockYou’s business revolves around its ad network and monetizing old games that it acquires from other publishers who can no longer make money from them. RockYou shows ads to the players and helps monetize the games, keeping them alive longer...
The three games they bought from Disney are apparently still going though.
Agent ATOMiZE has taken the initiative to contact both Gameloft (email@example.com) and Zynga (firstname.lastname@example.org) and is awaiting replies.
Do you think these avenues are worth pursuing?
We have nothing to lose, right?
For those who've missed it, there's also a petition going.
Keep in mind that the more signatures it gets the more chances of another company making an offer to buy the game back.
So please sign it if you haven't already done so.
