    Not really killing - just starting a rumer.

    A certain US celebrity is visiting my part of the world soon and I was wondering just how illegal it would be to start a celebrity death rumer and try to profit from it.

    Has anyone here done this and did you get away with it?

    That is the easiest part :).

    @OP: You could get some serious problems or even go to jail if they find you....

    The $$$ is the easy part

    Getting away with it would be the hardest part.

    Although just what laws would I be breaking.

    The rumer would be spread by numerous twitter accounts (that I already have - all anonymous)

    My money site for it is just already SEO'd with the celebs name and the location as well as the way she died. They all rank top 10 now already.

    I haven't monetized the site yet but I already have a few sites sitting in wait for just an occaision like this, and I've been throwing lots of links with the keywords at it already.

    I just need the balls to run with it!

    The celeb name doesn't actually appear on the sites, nor any mention of their death. There is lots about the way they will die though.

    Wow, you are one extremely twisted dude. I'm actually impressed.

    I like the way you ask "has any one done it?" like it's setting up an adsense account, and there must be a FAQ somewhere on monetizing celebrity death rumours.

    Seriously, I would have thought you can spin this without actual fake bereavement being involved. Celebrities have families who are mostly regular people who you could cause considerable pain.
    If any one finds out it was you, you could be in legal trouble and trust me, everyone who finds out will hate you a lot.

    ez. just google any celebrity with the word "dead" after it, there's tons of IMers using this method already.

    i would do it, you got nothing to lose imo, if it gets massive its doubtful it will come back on you, and even if it does i imagine it would only do good for the celebrities bank balance and reputation, you would actually be making them money in music/ movie sales etc (depending what the celebrity does)

    look how much MJ made after he died!

    Exactly what I was about to say.

    Nevertheless, if you don't cover your arse properly you can indeed get into massive legal trouble, and depending on your jurisdiction you can be held liable for moral damages.

    Why not just monetise the real death?

    There is a guy on here monetised Jade Goody, famous UK reality TV celebrity. He milked the niche for all it was worth while she was dying from cancer.

    You can see when celebrities will probably die here:

    I know that obviously there could be a civil lawsuit but this isn't really a criminal offence too is it? :confused:
