Actually if you look at your post, you have proved my point.
Again, in most cases you will not be subject to arrest for disorderly conduct as you have broken no law and have simply gone against the rules of the bus/train. Only if you refuse to disembark from the bus/train are you then subject to disorderly conduct, as THAT is an offence.
This is my point.
You eat on the bus, and someone complains (The copyright holder) to the conductor.
The conductor complies with the rules, asks you to stop eating, and calls the police when you become disorderly (Passing along the DMCA request)
The police arrive and cite you for disorderly conduct (The copyright holder presents evidence and sues you in civil court)
That is why this is a major issue, by COX acton on its own initiative, it cuts out the legal protections that were enacted because DMCA complaints in and of themselves do NOT carry any legal weight as evidence of wrongdoing.
