Whats DotA 2?
“What is Dota 2?” Dota began as a user-made modification for Warcraft 3 and has grown into one of the most played online games in the world. Following in the tradition of Counter-Strike, Day of Defeat, Team Fortress, Portal, and Alien Swarm, Dota 2 is the result of Valve hiring the community developers who built the mod and giving them the chance to finally build a full product out of their idea with the help of a professional team of developers and artists at Valve.
It's just a huge upgrade from DotA. Not only Graphic-wise, but a bunch of new features will be intergrated too. Read the DotA Q & A for more info."This approach means that Dota 2 basically is DotA-Allstars with new technology."~ Project lead Erik Johnson
A brand new game maybe, but it still carries the name DotA 2 so me calling it "a huge uprgade from DotA" is not technically wrong
And it's not DotA (Defense of the Ancients) 2, it's just DOTA2. Valve couldn't copyright the name.

I am not a lawyer, so I do not know much about the legal underpinnings behind this game. I do know that we are using the name DOTA and not DotA or Defense of the Ancients because of any potential legal trouble though.SOURCE : http://icefrogtruth.blogspot.com/
