Wow, this has the potential to waste a lot of people's time, doesn't it?
I already spend 30 odd hours a week searching and reporting.
Is there any cost associated with filing a DMCA notice?
Only your time.
If not, then people will file as many as they can in the hopes that some will stick.
You really think so?
Do you know how serious it is to raise a failse counterclaim? I hope you have deep pockets.
The hosting company will more than likely close you down before that happens. And it won't matter if you are then de-index or not because the person who found you will be keeping an eye on your site for a long, long time.
And if you get repeated notices filed against you, you will have to defend yourself or be de-indexed.
