The flow chart is a great alternative to the “wall of text” for those of us who aren’t lawyers. Thanks.
A question: If the counter-notice ten-day timeout expires without filing by the copyright holder, should not the infringement counter be rolled back? Otherwise, DCMA take-down notices could be used as a permanent Denial of Service(s) attack.
Of course, even with an infringement counter decrement, it could serve as a DoS. But my (limited) understanding of the law may make that unavoidable.
