If you are making income because you have appropriated someone else's name, you might be on very shaky legal ground.
I urge you to get knowledgeable legal advice, and don't get greedy or you could lose everything.
I'd also suggest that you treat the possibility of ongoing employment as an issue to be dealt with separately, not as a "bundle". See what your lawyer says about that, though.
a site that has a rank of #1, that alone makes the site worth a good deal more than what your costs have been
Do not get get delusions of grandeur over this. It would be an easy prospect for any competent webmaster to get top rankings for the person's own name once they had the domain name to work with.
