No one’s saying the world needed any reminders of just how wretched Pixels is, but at least this one serves as an object lesson in how broken anti-piracy laws and policies are.

Entura International, an anti-piracy firm representing Columbia Pictures, served Vimeo with takedown notices for a number of videos with the word “pixels” in the title. While the move was ostensibly aimed at eliminating pirated versions of the recent film from the video-hosting site, Entura only managed to inconvenience a number of independent artists.
