Can DMCA takedown notices be copyrighted themselves?.

If I got a notice like that I’d do the modern legal equivelent of "I double-Dog dare you"
and post it on every web site I could find.

Purely to get them into court and enter that kind of letter into evidence… however briefly before the judge had his clerk make copies for each lawer and hired an oragami expert to fold them so they were all sharp edges before putting them where they would best serve the interest of justice…
