Trying to overwhelm us via the sheer volume of emails or requests will not help if your content is properly licensed for reuse under Creative Commons. In May, we received more than a dozen DMCA requests pertaining to a series of images that appeared to be licensed for reuse under a Creative Commons CC BY-SA 2.0 license. Regardless of how much time has elapsed, or how much the original author would like to amend a license, a Creative Commons license cannot be revoked. We were thus unable to assist the requester with taking down properly licensed content.
