Can I publish my own version of Benedict Chess in my game site? The game
rules or game name has some restriction for usage?

I agree that white almost always wins unless the player is a novice.  The
game is very interesting but I think for it to be a good or excellant
variant it will require a tweaking to make black more competative.  

Perhaps Black must be the first to force a color switch.

It is an easy victory for white almost all the time, unless white commit fatal errors. Maybe playability would be better if the pieces movement is limited in rank, a longer board and pawns setup in third rank at first, but I'm not sure it is enough. As pointed out by the author, the game is certainly chaotic.
