maybe they should actually investigate these claims before they suspend people's accounts.

and furthermore they should ignore claims from companies that file more than three incorrect copyright claims.

make these companies actually check to see if there's a breach of copyright rather than just blanketing the net with claims for anything that looks or sounds anything like copyright without any punishment for making clearly false claims.
like claiming a copyright violation against somebody just because they have the same name as some singer?
the amount of these ridiculous claims is staggering.
yet i've seen actual pirate material that's been on youtube for years without a thing done about it.
