The brewer has gone to a European Union court to allow it to register an EU trademark for Homer Simpson’s favorite beverage.
Duff Beer UG sells “the legendary Duff beer” without mentioning the Simpsons on its packaging or its website.
Based in Eschwege, Germany, Duff beer filed a suit with the EU’s general court in Luxembourg, asking the court to overturn a decision by the EU trademark agency that prevented it from registering “the figurative trademark ‘Duff’ in black, white and red,” according to a filing published on 14 April.
