The Gates Are Open is reporting that Mars Hill Church (Mark Driscoll’s church in Seattle) is going after another Mars Hill asking them to ceast and desist the use of the name Mars Hill. The post includes the following:
Several people from Mars Hill church in Seattle have contacted me and let me know the intention of the Cease and Desist letter is to have Mars Hill Sacramento change their logo.

The next two pages explain the rationale in legalese. If the original intent was only to have Mars Hill Sacramento change the artwork, that should be communicated clearly by legal counsel. At this point, it clearly says they must change their name also. That is all I can say about this issue without being able to post a copy of the document.
The original logos are shown below.
What do you think? Does Mark Driscoll have a case?
