Site plans to use new infrastructure resources to fuel growth

LOS ANGELES (October 29, 2007) – DVDTalk.com, a market-leading website that provides news, discussion, and reviews of DVD releases, has been acquired by Internet Brands, Inc., a leading provider of consumer and e-commerce websites, Internet Brands executives announced today.

More than 50 staff writers and columnists regularly contribute reviews, columns, feature articles, and other content to the site.
