    Hello guys.
    Some days ago expired the tumblr account of a famous youtuber (265.000 subscribers).
    So today I registered again that Tumblr and I have rebuilt Tumblr with the same theme, content, etc.

    There are all sort of backlink: from his youtuber channel, from his facebook/twitter/instagram/google+ and a couple of external backlinks.

    My question is: Do you think there would be some legal issue with him? Also, is it safe to put my link in that?

    Well I guess if this famous guy finds out you are using is name and content and making it look like he or she then probably the person will try to take the account down. Probably you will loose it too I think if the person is famous and easy to prove who she/he is.

    If you're trying to impersonate him, you're likely to lose here, but if you post similar content (original) but not claiming to be him, I don't think he can do anything about it.

    If it is expired and registered then you can keep it as long as that guy don't come claiming. If tumblr let you register it why do u think you stole it ?

    If you are trying to impersonate then the account can be easily suspended/banned once it it is reported.

    You should change the content at least, or you risk the banhammer.

    PS: Tumblrs don't expire. They are just let go.

    Offer to sell it back to him? Tell him you need a finders fee for protecting his interest against possible Black Hatters taking advantage of his good name. You deserve a reward for this sort of proactive heroism. You saved his ass.

    Try and figure out how much income it was generating and let him know a few months of his income is a small price to pay for your efforts to protect him from unscrupulous black hatters. Think of the damage an unsavory sort could have done if they got control of his site.
    What if they put up gay porn or something like that?

    Schleprock, why should someone pay for getting back his tumblr if a mail to tumblr support does the same? It's not like domains, there is no ownership, they'll just take it from the OP and give it to the original owner. I wouldn't alert him...

    Yeah - using someone else to turn a profit (namewise) usually leads to bad juju.

    It's like making t-shirts with copyrighted images on them. If nobody finds out.. who cares?

    make as much money as you can while you can, when they tell you to jump off that horse, do so with pockets full of paper.

    I once copped a PR7 Tumblr with a 50+ TF that was the Tumblr of a multi million dollar company. My links are still up.

    from historical experience if its a brand name or a real persons name I avoid it.

    look you will eventually get it taken down, if you are not building a long term asset use it but expect to lose it.

    If I were you, I would not venture into a project like this. If he's popular he can proceed legally to have all your sites ( and content) taken down.
