60. Re: Blizzard Sues Over DOTA TM Feb 12, 2012, 11:41 ^Drag0n^
As I said two posts ago, if DOTA was created by a Valve employee, that will, also, have a significant effect on the outcome, as:

A) most companies have ip riders in their terms of employment laying claim to any invention created within the realm of their businesses sphere of influence for the duration of your employment. This includes "off the clock" ip. Or,

B) his having been an employee at valve, even if it was after release of the first DOTA mod, could be construed as a de facto transfer or license to use, as he obviously didn't object to Valve not only making the game, but through the title implying it was a sanctioned sequel.
