Nothing in the law says that the person issuing the counter-notice must 
be the person who originally posted the material in question. As I read 
it, anyone who feels that the takedown notice was invalid can file a 
counter-notice. That means, of course, that any person willing to file a 
counter-notice is also willing, and perhaps enthusiastic, to have his 
day in court.
