This answer took me a while to come to

Epak, spell it backwards

Kape, what does that sound like

Cape, why is that significant?

It really is quite simple. Epak is the person who designed the item "Sunfire Cape."

Hm... i thought you just had to swap some characters in random order.

Then you would get "Peak" and since peak is a location, we could also take Rift. And theres a map called summoners rift and it surely has an author so in conclusion Epak must be the creator of the Sunfire Cape!!!

Regarding this trademark/copyright business, I don't know because I'm not a Blizzard employee, but I seriously doubt this is anything other than the fact he named the mod World of Starcraft, which has an air of legitimacy that borderline infringes on Blizzard. Blizzard is very supportive of their modders, but also vigorously depends certain aspects of their IP (as they should and must).
