Tuning in to TV: ‘The Office’ to end after upcoming season
He said the final year will be exciting and memorable and will take creative chances — and it will reveal who has been making the mock documentary that has given the show its format.
Will former regional manager Michael Scott return as a guest? Mr. Daniels said he hopes Steve Carell will reprise his role as the socially inept boss, but he isn’t counting on it. Mr. Carell left the show in 2011.
Colombian brewers battle over ‘Simpsons’-inspired beer
The beer is the brainchild Alvaro and Oscar Ballesteros, brothers who in 2006 decided to produce a real Duff Beer. The following year they founded Duff Sudamerica in Bogota, and in 2008 they registered the trademark. The microbrewed golden ale has no additives and costs between $4 and $6, Oscar Ballesteros, 26, told Agence France-Presse.
“In 2009 we sold our first beers to bars in Bogota, and now we are in seven other Colombian cities, with a national production of 24,000 units a month,” said his brother Alvaro, 31.
20th Century Fox, a subsidiary of Rupert Murdoch's News Corp., was not amused. It sued the brothers for copyright infringement in Colombia — only to see the Ballesteroses claim that it was no longer “Duff,” but “DuH” beer.
“The fact that 20th Century Fox does not have such a product in the market does not mean [the Ballesteroses] can take advantage of a brand,” said Alicia Lloreda, a Colombian attorney with the local affiliate of News Corp.
Duff Sudamerica attorney Santiago Mora vowed to appeal.
“We are not going to let ourselves be frightened by a multinational,” Mr. Mora said. “We are going to fight a battle that is just starting. We will defend our rights.”
