Submission + - Blizzard sues Valve over DOTA (

dotarray writes: Further to this morning's news that Blizzard is planning to bring Blizzard DOTA to retail, we've now been informed that the company is suing Valve over the impending "official sequel", DOTA 2.
The original Defense of the Ancients was a mod for Warcraft III, based on a map from StarCraft — and Blizzard is claiming that the name "has been used exclusively by Blizzard and its fan community, under license from Blizzard" for more than seven years.
