    you should have no problem selling the domain in my opinion. just as long as you don't try to market it as instagram, or have anything on the wordpress site that makes people things its instagram.

    Don't try to sell it to instagram. They'll probably just ignore you. As far as anyone else, I don't see a problem, just like Blizz said. Don't pretend you're Instagram or anything like that, and you should be fine.

    They can't sue you for having a misspelled domain. Theres tons and tons of them that have been purchased and exist like that. Were you get into an issue is you try to pass it off in the sale. For instance, you say "1 letter off insatgram.com domain name"

    Or try to pass off site as "Instagram.com" etc.

    I think you get my point.
