Filing a false DMCA is perjury.
Filing a DMCA is done in "good faith".
When I fill out a DMCA (and I have done hundreds) I have to include...
"I hereby state that the information in this notice is accurate and, under penalty of perjury, that I am the owner, or authorized to act on behalf of the owner, of the copyright or of an exclusive right under the copyright that is allegedly infringed."
Only once did I have someone counter claim an image. He was wrong to do so as he wasn't the artist. He had a number of his own images on photobucket. Just one of his images in his collection wasn't his, it belonged to a client of mine. After proving to PB that it wasn't his, nothing more was heard.
