So I really wanted to say that it bugs me how commenters downvote everything they disagree with. I don't agree with DarkWalker's interpretation, but he's making cogent points in a clear and concise manner, and he's doing it respectfully. Why does that merit downvoting? I think other people have covered my disagreement with your earlier points fairly well dark, but as to your last point... Blizzard isn't trying to stop DOTA 2 being released, or trying to force valve to pay them for use of the name, they're just trying to stop them trademarking the name so that valve is the only company that can use it. Even without the tm, valve can still release DOTA 2, they can still call it DOTA 2,and they can still make bucketloads of money. EVEN IF they had to change the name to something else, Protection of the Elderly or something equally stupid, they're still going to sell a million copies, and Icefrog is still going to make a bundle from his hard work.
