Stephen: The Satanic Temple suing Netflix over Sabrina prop

The Satanic Temple has filed a lawsuit against Netflix Inc. and Warner Bros Entertainment over the streaming service’s alleged unauthorized use of a statue of the goat-headed deity Baphomet in the series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. In a complaint filed with the U.S. District Court, and obtained by the AP, the Satanic Temple accuses the defendants of copyright infringement, trademark violations and injury to its reputation. More specifically, it alleges that the series misappropriated the Salem, Massachusetts-based “Baphomet with Children” statue in ways implying that it “stands for evil.” The Satanic Temple also objects that the evil antagonists in “Sabrina” were depicted in a manner “in stark contrast to TST’s tenets and beliefs.” It is seeking more than $50 million in damages.
