The Temple of Satan is Following Through on Threats and Suing Netflix and Warner Bros. for $150 Million


I never thought that writing for GeekTyrant would lead me to ever talk about the Satanic Temple, yet here I am. Roughly a week ago, co-founder of the Satanic Temple, Lucien Greaves, made it clear that he was looking into suing Netflix over the use of a statue of Baphomet in The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina which TST holds copyrights to.

It now appears that he is following through on his threats as he has officially filed a suit for $150 million. Here are the claims:

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.

Overall, there are three grounds for which Greaves is suing: “copyright infringement, trademark violation, and injury to business reputation.” Each claim is worth $50 million which gives us the $150 mil total.

This a really big deal. Trademark and copyright infringements are no small matter. The question is, what’s Netflix’s move?
