Oh, could someone post a link please? I have yet to see anything saying Riot acted first :\ I have heard nothing but bad things about Icefrog at the same time..

"Whatever he is being paid, it is ridiculous, because the game is literally identical to DOTA. Everything from voices to art is being transferred over, because he demanded it. This game could have been made without his involvement at all." -- http://icefrogtruth.blogspot.com/

If you go and read through this the author claims to be a valve employee "whistle blowing" in concerns that Abdul is actually "stealing" from blizzard.

Now regardless of weather or not this is true doesn't Blizzard have a right to protect content? If this copyright from Valve is an attempt to avoid lawsuits and that is there only justification something seems wrong here to me..

I'm not trying to bash anything I'm just trying to debate and learn so please don't respond aggressively :c


-----------------------------------
EDIT: "If you go and read through this the author claims to be a valve employee "whistle blowing" in concerns that Abdul is actually "stealing" from blizzard. " Okay in that I was a bit off as it seems to actually be a far broader conflict and the author claims something was published in Game Informer so I shall go look for that.

What content they have no right on the game only the models and if valve makes some difrences they cant call copyrights Defends of the ancients is Icefrogs game not blizzards and I suggest on not updating dota1 anymore just to keep it on the wc version
as faent said, those were just rumors, someone trolling.
besides, even with icefrog the beta testers facepalmed at what valve did at the start. haha ^^

Even if Blizzard can protect content, they can only protect what was originally from WC 3 and TFT like models, lore, ladder spell names etc. Everything else Valve can use freely I mean look at HoN, basically identical to DotA heros and items, just different names and graphics and visuals
