The ISP is trying to withstand the millions of invalid DMCA warnings received for allegedly pirating subscribers. It got worse then Verizon received two million piracy warnings in one day from Rightscorp. This effectively crashed one of the ISP’s mail servers. As a result, Verizon decided to submit a response to the US Copyright Office, which reviews the effectiveness of the DMCA takedown process.
Along with other broadband providers, Verizon insists that the DMCA doesn’t require ISPs to forward warnings to their subscribers, because the ISPs don’t host any content. Nevertheless, Internet service providers receive tons of copyright infringement notices that target subscribers allegedly pirating music and films. However, Verizon describes these notices as invalid and call it a big problem.
A decade ago, the broadband provider received only 6,000 invalid peer-to-peer notices per month, but now that number has increased to millions because of automated notice factories. The problem is that the flow of invalid notices also affects Verizon’s ability to process legitimate claims – for example, at one point, a batch of more than two million notices in one day crashed one of the ISP’s mail servers.
The valid notices, which relate to the ISP’s hosting services and CDN, are only a few dozen per month, and it’s really hard to find them in a pile of millions of incorrect notices. Verizon believes that Congress never intended ISPs who simply pass on traffic to receive these kind of notices, where anti-piracy groups like Rightscorp regularly issue demands to terminate the accounts of repeat infringers. Now the ISP hopes Congress will make sure that abusive anti-piracy outfits are properly sanctioned.

|I bet $100 if we posted torrents with titles like "Poems I wrote About Justin Beiber" that they would be DMCA warnings. My hunch is they take down according to key words not content. We can make them look really stupid while discrediting their methods.|
|Ha,ha, good one now expand on it and post the keyword named torrent with content not illegal then its abusive takedown and of itself illegal. Abuse of the copyright law|

|I own all my Jusin Beiber albums in triplicate so they are only for packup.|

|I've received a few notices from verizon stating I downloaded TV Shows I've NEVER even heard of. I never downloaded those shows. So I simply don't use verizon's shitty DSL anymore (or Verizon AT ALL). I use a much better faster ISP & a privacy service. My Unlimited 4G LTE with T-Mobile works great for downloading also & I haven't had any problems/notices.|
