They're also in violation of the DMCA itself.  17 USC 512 includes
this requirement for those filing DMCA notifications:

	(vi) A statement that the information in the notification is
	accurate, and under penalty of perjury, that the complaining
	party is authorized to act on behalf of the owner of an exclusive
	right that is allegedly infringed.

(See https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/17/512 for full text.)

It's obvious from the comments in this thread there are no attempts
whatsoever to ensure that the information in these notifications
is accurate, that they're sending these notifications to operations
under the jurisdiction of US law, and that they're sending them
to the relevant/correct operations.
