Pixels copyright claim pulls its own trailer from Vimeo

Pixels

Pixels, the video game-inspired comedy movie widely believed to be one of the seven seals of the apocalypse, has managed to get itself in a fun pickle over on video hosting site Vimeo. An anti-piracy group working for Columbia Pictures has filed copyright claims with Vimeo, leading to a variety of innocent indie videos being pulled, alongside the film’s own trailer.

The company, Entura International, filed copyright claims on any video using the following criteria: "Pixels", "Pantone Pixels", "Pixels", "Pixels - HD Trailer", "Detuned Pixels - Choco", "Pixels - Life Buoy", "Pixels: Redeye @ Kettering", "Pixels Festival 2015", "Love Pixels- VJLoops", "Pixels Official Trailer (2015) - Adam Sandler, Peter Dinklage"

The result saw the likes of indie project Paper Pixels being pulled from the site, along with the original short that Pixels is based on, and even the film’s own trailer. We won't miss the trailer though, if we're honest. 

“The videos were takedown in accordance with Vimeo’s DMCA policy,” explained a Vimeo spokesperson to Kotaku. “However, Vimeo’s Trust & Safety team are further evaluating the claims made and will have an update in the coming days.”

Talking of Pixel duff moves, check out the advert for the film attached to Yogscast videos, and see if you can pinpoint the exact moment when Adam Sandler loses the will to live.

Adam Sandler movies are so bad now that they stink for miles!! He deserves it though; he was mildly amusing to begin with and is now a total Hollywood douchebag. F*ck him.
