Dota most definitely does not belong to Blizzard.

I dunno its vastly different from LoL's since the itemization of Dota is alot different and also different shops

its easier to fast buy in Dota too and you can customize your own item builds
I didn't say LoL's shop is better, I said that they copied the new shop UI from DOTA 2. It now has a search bar, grid/list view, just like dota's.. I still believe DOTA 2 has a better shop though.

Where's the end user clause that states that whatever is made in the WCIII map editor belongs to Blizzard?

It's way easier in pretty much every way. It's like a simplified, easier to pick up version of DotA/Dota 2.

Some of the heroes belong to Blizzard, thus their names aren't the same.
Examples:
Neroubian Assassin>Nyx Assassin
Kael, the Invoker>Invoker (his legal name in DOTA 2 is Carl, Valve has stated that they took the idea from the translation error etc.)
Harbinger, the Obsidian Destroyer>Harbinger, the Outworld Destroyer

I don't say I like it, I just say it's true..

The problem is that you're used to the reaction times and such of DotA. There's no turn time in League, as well as a lot less punishment if you get out of position. You're probably playing too carefully. Although it's a good idea to be more careful around towers (Those things hurt like a biatch) while you're in lane, don't give no f*cks.

Also, there's no denying. You probs figured that out already.

Don't forget that there is basically zero unit collision in LoL too and minions hits do basically nothing. In DotA a group of minions can take you down hard if you aren't careful and they can block the hell out of you in an escape.

There's enough unit collision to make some people miserable, but yeah, very little.
