The DotA brand being disputed by Valve and Blizzard
During the last months, Blizzard has tried to obtain the DotA brand. Their dispute was against Valve, the company that is currently developing DotA 2.
The final decision was that Blizzard will keep their “DotA” name for the non-commercial DotA map that is developed by Icefrog (Warcraft 3), while Valve will keep their brand for DotA 2.
Those who follow Blizzard’s news are familiar with the fact that they are developing their own MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) video game. Their new game will be named “Blizzard AllStars” and will feature most of the well known characters from the Blizzard’s games, Starcraft, Diablo and the Warcraft universe.
