Sixes are Sevens: NFL edition

I am no lawyer, but as an academic and teacher I am sympathetic to the fair use policy, especially the spirit of fair use. Therefore, it is odd to see this in today's Chronicle of Higher Education:
Last month Wendy Seltzer, a visiting assistant professor at Brooklyn Law School, was slapped with a DMCA takedown notice after she posted a snippet of the NFL's standard copyright warning, taken from this year's Super Bowl, on YouTube (The Chronicle, February 16).
Perhaps she wouldn't have had a problem if she had posted it at her own website? How is it a violation of copyright to show a copyright warning? Can the NFL copyright its copyright warning?
