The article's been amended to now make it clear that Valve own the Dota trademark. However, Breyer's summation of the case specifically mentions eul and Icefrog selling the copyrights to Valve.
yeah, its annoyingly stupid misdirection which uCool are attempting. Most of this issue rely on uCool using the original (not all stars) code (the meaning of Open Source) which they are not. they are using Lilith's game.
The "Who Owns Dota" was taken to court before, as Riot "owned" the copyright of "Dota: All Stars" when they hired Guinsoo but sold the rights back to blizzard. Valve hired both Eul and Icefrog, and seem to have tried to get the copyright, but it was settled out of court, with Blizzard still owning it.
The Copyright strikes in question are in reference to the fact that they are using the likeness of Warcraft and Dota 2 models in Chibi form.
uCool's arguement 1. Dota is Open Source
Every Moba is inspired by the same code, doesn't hold up.
Arguement 2. Eul gave up the rights to "Dota"
Fine, but Valve then claimed them legally.
The fact that this has even had to go to court is just delying tactics by uCool so they can shift as much as they can before they invariably have to take it down
Speaking of which, uCool have 2 holding addresses in California and Boston with no actual idea of where they are based
Whoops, our bad on that one. Thanks for letting us know and it's now corrected.
