“Not only do we deny your claim of copyright, we’re going to trumpet your clumsy, heavy-handed attempt to hide the evidence of your shoddy, sloppy “journalism”.”

We state

  1. that we have a good-faith belief that the use is not authorized […]
  2. under penalty of perjury that the information in our notice is accurate […]

So… is it prossible to prove “beyond reasonable doubt” that the legal affairs office of a UK firm did in fact know that US copyright law does allow for reproductions for the purpose of criticism?

There sure is plenty of circumstantial evidence (meaning: it’s obvious) that a UK lawyer sending a DMCA complaint would know at least that much about US law, but would that be enough to convict?
