Skeeve
Blogger and Youtube poster [url=http://owningyourshit.blogspot.ca/]girlwriteswhat[/url] recently had three videos flagged under the DMCA. Two of these videos were flagged by Lisa Olsen(heheeheehahaha@yahoo.com) and the other was flagged by Jenny Foster(kendrabreedgt@yahoo.com). Neither of these two accounts are valid.

Youtube really needs to rethink their DMCA policy to prevent these types of malicious and false claims. I can understand the immediate removal of videos under claim, but there needs to be more put into place to prevent the above types of acts. A simple message to verify email addresses after the fact, with a failure to reply resulting in an immediate dismissal of the claim, would be so much better than forcing the one claimed against to reveal personal information when refuting the DMCA.
