You can download a Microsoft Word Document from there, fill the details and then send them an email.
However, what makes me wonder is, the entire web page is in Chinese, the Word Document's Contents are in Chinese, the terms of Service and Rules are written in Chinese.
I do not think they are really going to take any action if a copyright infringement notice is filed because they have no instructions for English Speaking Users.
Or they expect you to use an online Translator like Google for this purpose?
Anyway, I am going to fill the details in Word Document and send Youku an email however wanted to know if someone has any experience with filing DMCA notices on Youku or aware of the kind of response they have to copyright infringement complaints?
After searching on Google, I came across one article where someone mentioned that as a result of filing a copyright infringement notice, Youku just blocked the videos in US while they could still be accessed from other countries.

That is true. However, DMCA is applicable in several countries besides USA as well.
In this case, I think the only option is to fill the Chinese Word Document and send an email to Youku to delete the content. I wonder if they will even consider to take action on an email written in English.
I guess I am going to need an English to Chinese translator to do the work.

Most (at least western) countries have similar copyright laws and notice and take-down procedures. So while sending a letter and demanding the takedown of infringing content might not be called a "DMCA notice" the procedure is often very much the same.
So actually you are both right and wrong. It's often the same thing with another name.

The trouble with discussions like this is that DCMA seems to be regarded by some as a generic term for a take down request in the same way as Hoover gets used (in the UK at least) as a generic term for a vacuum cleaner.
If you start explicitly quoting DCMA at a non US recipient, even if there is an analagous local procedure, the immediate reaction is likely to consist of two words.
