When are we going to apply the DMCA properly?

One of the biggest problems with the expansion of fair use--or even using the fair use rights we have now--is companies with automated censorship regimes submitting hundreds of thousands of takedown requests without human verification.  Microsoft is only one such company doing this.

In theory, a company or person can be penalized for sending out spurious takedowns.  But to my knowledge, this has never happened even one time.
