Make sure your form requires them to check a box that relieves you of all 
legal responsibility for the infringing content.  And another that says they 
    will be responsible for your costs if their claim is without merit.  And 
requires a telephone number and email address to contact (and refuses urls).

Then the filled out form is emailed to them with the requirement that the 
respond in some way to verify that they filled out the form (a verification 
URL perhaps).

That should pretty much end dmca complaints via e-mail.
