First time I've seen this: phishers are hacking legitimate URLs, then sending DMCA takedown notices to people containing links to malware. I receieved this email today, then called the domain admin, who verified it's a scam.
If you've found this page by searching google for the text of an email, consider this a confirmation that the email is a phishing scam.
I have removed the hyperlinks from the URLs below; PLEASE DO NOT VISIT THESE ADDRESSES, as they most likely contain malware.
