Legitimate videos DMCA'd off by Pixels movie copyright enforcers

8 posts in this topic

On the off chance you don't already hate Adam Sandler's latest film, here's a new reason to loathe it. Vimeo has been hit by a wave of copyright takedowns of anything with Pixels in it.

 

 

Entura International, a company that specialises in preventing and taking down copyright-infringing material for film companies, has sent a DMCA notice to Vimeo, to remove a list of videos on the site that include the word “Pixels” in their title.

Among the legit, non-infringing videos removed is Pixels by NeMe – the Independent Museum of Contemporary Art based in Cyprus – a video that was released way back in 2006. This is the same year Adam Sandler shat out Click, so it’s long before the moviePixels was even thought of.

Other victims of the DMCA include a fan-made music video of the band The Pixels’ song Life Buoy, a 2010 award-winning film called Pixels by Patrick Jean (which is still available on YouTube), a video for the Pixels Festival in Belgium, and a video calledLove Pixels by royalty-free stock footage site VJLoops.

Much like the system on YouTube, a DMCA takedown notice on Vimeo will give a strike to the person’s account, so genuine artists are being punished for using a word that’s been in active use since the 1960s. The fact Entura has just plowed through Vimeo and removed anything with “Pixels” in the title is worrying. 

 

Well, gee, I guess that since "pixels" isn't a common English word you can find in the dictionary, this s totally legit... Oh, wait...

So, thank you for that, Pixels. I hate you more then ever now.

Here's yet another reason copyright in the United States must be dissolved and restructured to be friendly for both the consumer and the industry. As long as Big Media keeps giving money to politicians, this shit will continue to go on.

It is.  They have no basis for a copyright claim.

It also appears Entura International is backpedalling now the press has caught on and the affected videos have been restored.
