no. The DMCA requires that the submitter of the complaint be a copyright holder or an agent of a copyright holder (that part has perjury penalties to deter pranksters) and that the submitter have a good faith belief that the content infringes (which just means "someone/a computer algorithm told me it infringes and I don't know otherwise, that's my story and I'm sticking to it"). That's it.

sure it can; it just takes work (which increases entropy somewhere else). Give it a few years (okay, a couple decades) and I bet someone will have an atom-level deposition device that can take a burnt match and air and place the atoms for an unburnt match (not fast, mind you...)
