I thought such copyright laws apply to npc names, lore and assets only.

I really loved using and abusing the DotA 1 fog of war mechanic to its fullest, The way FoW works in DotA 2 (IMO) is similar to DotA 1 but it seems a bit smoother a much more forgiving for when you click on the enemy hero, but it just loves to bug out and not move you when you click on fog and there is a hero right there in the fog blocking your path which you cannot obtain vision of.
The FoW is different and not in a good way, it may minimize the frustrations of new players but its just taking off another layer of difficulty that makes the game so beautiful.
