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

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?
