Cyberbiz Brief

Stan Lee Media is laying off 19 staffers in its production division to cut overhead costs and focus more on internal production, according to company prexy and CEO Kenneth Williams. Layoffs represent 20% of the company’s production staff and 13% of the entire company’s 142 employees.
