I'm new to this game so treat me as such - Utter Noob. I bought an expired domain name which has a PR of 4 and a fair amount of links. The content was from a PhD researcher and is excellent. I realized after buying the domain that the previous owner was unaware it had expired and was still adding content. The transaction has now completed and from her Twitter account she is livid, stating that someone has appropriated her domain as if it was some sly evil transaction. Before her domain expired I backed up all the content and created a WP site. A lot of the content references other sources which I can use without copyright issues, but a number of the posts are her own writings on a subject. The website also had a Creative Commons statement, which may/may not be of note. What are my rights in using the previous content to maintain the website? If I didn't buy the domain then somebody else would've and plastered it with click-ads. I'm interested in comments about the moral aspect as well.
