Vimeo Intervenes to Fix ‘Pixels’ DMCA Disaster

“After users informed us that their videos did not contain any Pixels content, we reached out to Entura. Entura has since withdrawn its takedown notice. As a result, we have now restored the affected videos.”
Without providing any evidence, Entura was not only able to have ten entirely non-infringing videos removed from the service, but in response Vimeo issued each of its affected customers with a ‘strike’ against their account. If the users were to receive a couple more of these they could be classified as serial offenders and find themselves banned from Vimeo altogether. – Andy, TorrentFreak

Vimeo Should Take Some Of The Blame For Simply Accepting Massive Bogus DMCA Takedown Over The…

[O]bviously, much of the blame for this ridiculous set of circumstances should fall on Entura International for being terrible at its own job in issuing bogus takedowns. And some of the blame should fall on Columbia Pictures for hiring Entura — a company that clearly has no business sending out DMCA takedowns. But, also, much of it should fall on Vimeo for simply giving in and accepting the obviously bogus takedown requests. Just recently, we noted that Automattic (the company that makes WordPress.com) had published in its transparency report that it had rejected 43% of the DMCA takedown notices it had received — and we suggested other companies start paying attention. Google also is known for rejecting bad DMCA takedowns. – Mike Masnick, Techdirt
