No, it doesn't.

If I have a web server that's configured to serve up pages for 1,000
different web sites, and I get a DMCA complaint about one in particular,
I can disable that one alone.

Is this not self-evident?

No, you don't.

I frankly don't know what you are going on about.  How do logs even enter
into this?

If a DMCA complaint comes in, you go and look at the (alleged) offending
content.  If it appears that it may be a DMCA action, then you action
either that page or the whole web site, as may suit you.

How do logs even enter into this?

They are demonstratably irrelevant.

No, it isn't.  A web server needs one port (80).  A mail server needs one
port (25).  A name server needs one port (53).  A /24 block provides nearly
seventeen *million* IPv4 ports for outbound _client_ use, most or all of
which should actually be migrated over to IPv6 anyway.
