Blizzard Sues Over DOTA TM

This document is Blizzard's "notice of opposition" to Valve's efforts to trademark "DOTA," to which Blizzard has long objected. This federal lawsuit follows indications that Blizzard is planning a retail release for their own DOTA game, which at one point was thought to be a StarCraft II modification. Blizzard filing lists the following reason for opposition: "Priority and likelihood of confusion."

The most annoying thing is that riot games were classy enough to leave the name alone they have a much longer history of theoretical "ownership" than Icefrog does. Then LoL was born without the "help" of a DOTA name and became the largest multiplayer game in the world right now. (11+ million peeps active right now, (not total) account uniquie IDs active in the last x days).

I said it back in the begining, Valve are pulling a DICK MOVE here and are cashing in on something they didnt contribute to in anyway for there own profits, personally i hope blizzard taken them to the cleaners and the name DOTA stays in the mod community.

But honestly when was the last time Valve released some IP they created, answer, HL2.
