Most of us has to settle for used domains if we are to find a good TLD or name. What will hinder this process is that the history of the domain and related URLs. According to Google, the bad history will go away by itself if it was not there for a long period. But if the issue is there since a long time, you might have a real problem at hand. According to John Mueller of Google if a domain has a bad reputation like piracy for say 10 years, it is really hard to clear its name with Google.
