    I need an Insta name for promotions- problem is it's taken but has 0 followers, pics, following. Is there a way to get it? :/

    If it's for a very big brand you can send a request to Instagram, takes time but if you have all registered and proved (trademarks etc) it might work. Easiest way is trying to tag the account or any other way to contact the owner and buy the account.

    I've sent multiple messages to Instagram & the owner w/ no response- it is a trademark name but Instagram has not responded. I've been trying since July.

    if the owner is not replying and the account is not operational, it would mean that the owner no longer use it or disowned it. Just take the name and use it. I have seen multiple accounts on Instagram with similar names so I think it would cause no harm
