I want to start a fantasy football website but need help?

Can you help answer Kyle N's question about Football?:

I have come up with a different type of fantasy football game which is a mix of a survivor leage and regular fantasy football. I have a website and am looking to do a full launch for the 2008 season. Do I have to trademark my site or do anything before I fully launch? I am going to offer my game for free, as well as a money league. Does anyone know of a gaming regulations website? Any helpful comments would be greatly appreciated as I am just getting started.

A: If I were you i'd consult a lawyer. I'm not sure what you mean by a "money league" but i'm pretty sure, being a law student, that you're not allowed to conduct a website that has gambling on it given the fact that Bush has recently passed legislation limiting online gambling even further. If its a free website you don't necessarily have to trademark or copyright anything unless you want to copyright the java or C++ code you are using for your site (which is debatable). you cannot copyright an idea so that's out of the question but you can trademark anything you want if you have a symbol for your website. but like i said earlier, i'd consult a lawyer. you probably don't need to do any of that stuff if you're planning on keeping it a free website.
