    Hi,
    Unfortunately one forum has been totally shutdown and they redirect to another site ((they change their business )).. so I've register another domain which almost very similar to that domain I also clone the design & logo ..etc from (source from archive.org) like china work:) to my site without any permission from that site, also do hard to make my webpage result in upper than him in google.

    the question is : if the owner know that ,,he can he call Google customer support and complain me? and google can do something like block my adsense or shutdown my site.?

    for me i don't see any issue for that since the guy no more need it .. and I've ruining that site more that 6 month

    You better just modify the logo and some stuff of their website to be sure. But better try to modify it and make it your own, don't just copy it.

    It's really better to create your own site and design.

    Have you tried to contact the whois information from their new domain? I would first try at least to get a hold of them. I do not think you can get in trouble using their domain name if its not trademark. Though using their logo and design, that is a big copyright issue!

    Hi.. Of-course google can block or ranking of your site may drop, so better you change the logo or tag-line and one more thing according to trademark law or you can say dépôt de marque law you cannot use the similar site for same product and services. It has to be unique. The best option is buy a domain or create your web-page uniquely at-least there won't be any tension of those legal things. You can visit to http://marques.expert/ for a brief idea.

    You'll not be able to create a brand if you'll just copy the whole idea.
    You can get inspired by the idea but you need to have your own identity.

    As Patricia said you need to create your own design and content because it will be bad for future business if you do not create your own brand, even if the forum is shutdown they could still have copyrights.
