Valve and Blizzard Reach DotA Trademark Agreement
Some time ago we mentioned the ongoing battle between Blizzard and Valve over the DotA trademark. This was finally resolved recently with an agreement that allows Valve to use the DotA trademark commercially and Blizzard to use the trademark only for noncommercial use. This means that they could no longer use the name Blizzard DotA and have now renamed the game to Blizzard All-Stars.
In a press release, Rob Pardo said that the new name "better reflects the design of our game" and that Blizzard will go into more detail on that in the future. Gabe Newell expressed his pleasure at coming to an agreement without making things messy, saying that "We both want to focus on the things our fans care about, creating and shipping great games for our communities."
The companies do not plan to discuss the terms of the agreement beyond today's announcement, but we now know that the DotA name will still be safe for the community to use! Riot has not officially commented on this agreement and the status of their dispute remains unchanged on the USPTO website.
