Question Did you know?


Baron Nashor, LoL's equivalent to Roshan, the Nashor part of his name is an anagram to Roshan.


Valve can make a legal case, yes? Discuss.

Did they put copyrights for Roshan yet? I don't know.

Besides, Valve doesn't care what Riot is doing anyway.

Nope and even if they could, bothering with something as small as that will affect their reputation.

Sdrawkcab name? Nice. But people really should stop suggesting companies to act like 3yo kids arguing about who came up with meaningless word first.

Either they can or can't, I think they won't do it because as Sven2k said above, their reputation is just so big for that stuff.

This is an outrage! Guinsoo's bowling ball should sue Riot for such blatant name-theft!

yeah dota can't really sue, they can only sue if the use of roshan causes damage to their business/makes unfair money off them.

a.
an anagram doesnt lead to any consumer confusion, as the names are too different

b. Guinsoo made the original name, so it'll be kinda hard to argue in court that he stole his own creation

c. LoL was before dota 2 (dota was a mod, and didn't have copywrite protection O,o)

Also to be honest, most LoL players don't even know Baron Nashor's full name. They just call it Baron.
