2001: The Polaroid Corporation files for federal bankruptcy protection. Almost all the company's assets (including the "Polaroid" name itself, which had become almost synonymous with instant photographs) were eventually sold to a subsidiary of Bank One. They went on to form a new company, which also operates under the name Polaroid Corporation. The "new" Polaroid Corporation would also file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, this time on Dec. 18, 2008.
