The DMCA form was filled out approximately 100-300 times in that period. 
The vast majority were spam, and that's why I don't have accurate numbers, 
since I deleted much of the spam.

Approximately 10 submissions were users asking questions or pointing out 
errors and not related to any complaints of a legal nature. These users 
were forwarded to more appropriate channels.

The one complaint in the report was from a US user upset that a service 
road on their property appeared on a map based on OSM data. Upon 
investigation, the road was in the third party rendering but not present 
in OSM data, and they were referred to the third party provider.
