If the IP addresses, hostnames, or domain names are not yours, why would you even bother responding? IANAL, I don't think it's your responsibility to direct them to the correct place.

Consider an auto-responder directing them to the DMCA page of your corporate website.

I am sure all of you know of these guys. But what do you do when they keep
spamming your abuse address with reports for illegal downloads from
IP-addresses that are in no way related to our business?

I tried contacting them. And was told repeatedly that I had to update whois
information if I want the reports to be sent to another address. How I do
that for IP-ranges that are not mine is a good question. Besides the whois
information for said IP-ranges already have valid abuse information and it
is not our email address.

Do I just block them for spamming?
