Countdown To Sony Being Stupid And Busting Me

Sony Removes its ‘The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo’ Trailer From the Web

Before it was removed, though, that particular YouTube posting had been viewed more than 1.4 million times as of noon PDT on Tuesday.

So, the video I embedded in this post is now gone.

Note that I didn’t upload it to YouTube. I found out about it from everyone talking about it on the Internet.

Isn’t that the damn purpose of a movie trailer?

Since Sony clearly can’t see the value of fan-driven word-of-mouth, I expect them to make my other post disappear: Shot By Shot: The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo Red Band Trailer.

Because, you know, crappy lo-res snaps helping to spread the word for free about their major 2011 movie will threaten all of Sony’s income!

I’m making this a sticky so we can all play this game at home. This sticky is posted June 1st, let’s see how long that post stays up.

Update June 5, 2011: I’ve unstuck this post from the front page. Unless Sony is planning a full-blown lawsuit — doubtful — they would have DMCAed WordPress by now. It didn’t take that long for them to do that with YouTube.
