who wants to be a millionaire game


I am interested in making a trivia site with a format

similar to the ''Who wants to be a millionaire'' game show.

This site will be commercial in nature because in the future

I would like to charge people a set annual fee for attempting a new set of questions every day.

I will like to know how I can make the site in order to avoid legal action from the owners of the who wants to be a millionaire trademark.

I will be using my own questions, not ones from the show on ABC.

I would like to know what restrictions I will have on the name of my game and URL. Also will I have to make structural changes like 2 lifelines instead of 3 or 3 milestones instead of 2?

Any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated!
