    Hi,

    Actually have taken many nice .eu domains and used the WayBack to build sites. May it cause me juridical issues ?

    That sounds like a question you should ask your doctor.

    If the company you are taking it off has been wound up/dissolved I wouldn't worry. (You lose your right to sue once your company is dissolved.)

    And it should also should be noted, if the company is incorporated, it is a separate legal person to the owner. Meaning only the company can make you remove it, so make sure you ignore all those emails from people representing themselves claiming legal right, when it is their company who needs to contract you.

    I had this issue in the past and schooled the stupid mofo. Law degree coming in handy, aye.

    Yes and No. Image's and text duplication can give you Copyright issues. but I would not expect it. I would advise that you do not use a catch-all email. I know if you are in the USA it's ok, but Europe has some strong privacy rules, so safe is better.
    Side note: I have taken people to court in the USA for Image theft, and text theft. I don't mind you making money off me, just pay me a cut of the action. I have learned in the last 17 years that by saying on my copyright page that you can use my stuff in exchange for money or links or whatever, it pays.

    I take it as you aren't operating as a company then?

    while I won't answer your question directly I will state this: A) if you hold your website in a legal entity, then use a lawyer. B) if it's in your personal name then you personally can file the correct papers.
    Nothing worst than having some complaint dismissed because you needed a lawyer.
