Doubtful.  DMCA (the C is Copyright) protects copyright owners.  I have 
never seen anyone claim copyright over their DNS records.

Interesting thought, but copyright law is a tangled mess that I would 
guess is probably the wrong tactic if someone were planning to legally 
oppose/attack service providers using NXDOMAIN redirection.  Also, only 
the 'owner' of a copyright can bring suit.
