There is probably nobody who can tell you with certainty, since there is not much legal precedence. For the expired content, it’s unlikely anybody will every find out or care. We make sure the content is not published elsewhere on the internet. In reality: most content on the Internet is duplicated elsewhere, so it’s unlikely that these types of borderline cases will cause you any problems. We recommend removing or replacing the original contact details (phone number, street address) of the authors, in case they are included somewhere in the articles (occasionally at the end).We never heard from a customer who actually got into legal troubles because of using our services. The person who uploads an item often provides information related to use rights, either by way of directly entering it in the description field or by selection of a Creative Commons license. The latter, if included by the uploader, will be viewable via a Creative Commons logo on the details page, which serves as a link to a description of the specific type of license that the uploader has assigned. This is why we include the URL that originated the content so you can evaluate the copyright situation for yourself; this tool only scrapes the text. However, if the domain has expired and the content is not declared as duplicate or plagiarized on Grammarly (which every article we scrape is checked for and the passed Grammarly plagiarism score is also included in every one of our articles), the risk of copyright infringement is exceedingly low.
