Notch's answer to this? He prefers a multiplayer deathmatch over a legal battle. He has challenged Bethesda to a Quake III 3v3 match, each company chooses one map and highest total frag count wins. If Notch's team wins, then Bethesda drops the lawsuit. If Bethesda wins, then Notch changes the name to something that Bethesda doesn't have a trademark on.
We support this notion of keeping a petty lawsuit out of the courts and letting the companies settle it like true gamers should-- in a Quake deathmatch. Come on Bethesda, time to man up and accept the challenge.
