Something needs to done about the content ID match system

Over the past few months, there have been multiple "companies" who have been abusing the Content ID system in order to automatically send copyrights to people. These "companies" will find a popular video game trailer or cutscene from a videogame, or anything else and claim that they own it. Then, anyone who tries to reupload the original trailer or attempts to play the game with the cutscene in it, will automatically get slapped with a "visual content" copyright claim against themselfs.
It is obvious that these "companies" do not own any content, as the REAL copyright information can be found online.
The big problem is that it isn't just one or two fake "companies" that are doing this. It is happening by the multiples. "Canal Teuve", "Sanoma NL", etc..
If the real copyright owners to these clips were the ones filing the claims, then that would be fine fine, but the problem is that they aren't the ones doing it.
