Is Lycos Europe Any Closer To Finding A Buyer?

It was back in April that Lycos Europe, after failing to reinvent the once-mighty portal for today’s web, put itself up for sale. Still no word on who might buy the network or for how much.

The company in May said it was entering takeover talks with interested parties in the US, Asia and Europe.
