The warning is a temporal message, given to those that run the script.
Because of this its not a legal notice of a possible copyright
infringement, its a tool. The distinction is very important as the first
must result in a solution while the second may trigger an action.
Also, if you check the history of some of those bots you will find that
they creates a lot of troubles because they post statements about
copyright infringements, while either the material should be deleted on
sight or the contributor should be contacted. By using an interactive
tool it is the admin using it that takes action, not the tool itself.
And a last thing, if you try to run such a bot you will very quicly find
that there are a lot of nearly identical texts, its like finding to eggs
on the wall mart and yelling "hey its a copyvio"!

Haven't you think that the bots could make a list of possible
copyright infringments, and users could check this list.
My point is, it could be run 24/7 it would just need a server to run
it, and it would be up to date.
Similar to the way I've seen COIBot run on meta. Compile a list and
write it to some place like a user space. People could check the
userspace pages for entries and follow up on them.
