I'm a little surprised that Valve believes it can trademark "DotA" (or other capitalization variations - I never know which one to use -_- ). I have never played the mod/game and, even with my cursory knowledge, would have said that there is too much dilution of the term for a successful trademark filing. /puzzled

Yeah, as far as titles go it seems fairly generic. I'm sure Valve thinks they can go with it just because they hired Icefrog (as someone mentioned in the comments) but it'd be like having a foods brand and just naming your stuff "Cheese Products" and "Chips in a bag." As much as I love Valve, it seems rather un-creative and lazy on their part to go to all this trouble over something that should have had a unique name to begin with.
