The DMCA creates legal liability for knowingly making false claims in a DMCA takedown notice or counter-notice. 17 U.S. Code § 512(f)(2) states that those knowingly misrepresenting any materials under the Act:
shall be liable for any damages, including costs and attorneys’ fees, incurred by the alleged infringer, by any copyright owner or copyright owner’s authorized licensee, or by a service provider, who is injured by such misrepresentation, as the result of the service provider relying upon such misrepresentation in removing or disabling access to the material or activity claimed to be infringing, or in replacing the removed material or ceasing to disable access to it.
