I reiterate my position that I stated in the original thread about this stupid attempt at appeasing those whom Google hopes to suck up to by making such a change:
"I don't have a problem with DMCAs. I've used them myself against people who have scraped my content. But using them as a ranking factor when the tendency of hosting providers is to takedown the content as the result of almost any DMCA request first... and hope the accused doesn't ask questions later... is very dangerous and VERY open to manipulation. Hello Roboform and other tools... You can definitely automate submission of "valid" DMCA requests. "
My guess... 1000% is NOTHING compared to what it will be once people begin gearing up to automate the process of submitting them.
