Netflix Sued by Satanic Temple for $150 Million Over ‘Sabrina’ Series
Netflix is being sued by a Satanic Temple for an outrageous $150 million.
According to The Blast, court documents show that the Satanic Temple is suing Netflix alongside Warner Bros. for using their organization’s copyrighted design of the monument to Baphomet in episodes of “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.”
In the lawsuit, the Temple states that the “Defendants misappropriated the TST Baphomet Children in ways implying that the monument stands for evil. Among other morally repugnant actions, the Sabrina Series’ evil antagonists engage in cannibalism and forced-worship of a patriarchal deity.”
They add that the statue appears in four of the 10 episodes of the series and is a “key element” in the season finale.
The temple also says that they allegedly notified Netflix and Warner Bros. of the copyright violations in October, however, neither company responded.
The Temple’s co-founder, Lucien Greaves, previously tweeted that he planned on taking legal action, “Yes, we are taking legal action regarding #TheChillingAdventuresofSabrina appropriating our copyrighted monument design to promote their asinine Satanic Panic fiction.”
The temple wants an injunction that prevents Netflix and Warner Bros. from distributing the series with the infringing images.
They are suing for copyright infringement, trademark violation, and injury to business reputation, where they are asking for $50 million for each.
