Bottom line: Eul or Icefrog own the IP to Dota, they both work at Valve.

EULAs will NOT hold up in court, especially in a case like this, in which Valve has gone a long way to avoid any copyright infringement with character design, etc, etc.

Blizzard has no case whatsoever.

All I see are people who have no idea how trademarking law works. To put it simply, Blizzard's EULA is not going to hold up very well in court.

you're probably among them, because Blizzard's eula is IRRELEVANT to a trademark issue

Blizzard doesn't have a very convincing case either way. Dota belongs to the community? Bull **** and they know it.

They don't even make that claim anywhere in their complaint.
