The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...

Dumb Pixels Anti-Piracy Group Takes Down Its Own Dumb Pixels Trailer on Vimeo

Posted on Monday, August 10 @ 08:00:00 PST by


As if the reputation for the movie Pixels couldn't get any worse, an anti-piracy group called Entura International on behalf of Columbia Pictures has taken down anything and everything with the word "Pixels" on Vimeo.

A 2008 video called Pixels made by The Independent Museum of Contemporary Art? Taken down. What about a music video called Life Buoy by a music band called The Pixels? Gone. Or the award-winning 2010 film by Patrick Jean that Pixels is pretty much based on? Sayonara. TorrentFreak revealed even more videos that were taken too.

And the kicker: What about the damn official movie trailer for Pixels? No, they wouldn't be this stupid, right? Oh yeah, it's dead. *facepalm*

Worse yet, all those affected now have a strike against their accounts on Vimeo and will need to waste their time filling out a counter notice and wait until their videos can be repaired.

If this doesn't point to the idiocy of this automated "guilty before proven innocent" DMCA system, nothing will. It's also a bit ironic, because if we're being honest here, the whole concept of Pixels is based on a Futuruma episode. With how specious and random these copyright claims are, FOX could take every video related to Pixels down on the Internet. How much fun would that be?
