The Satanic Temple has filed a lawsuit for Netflix and Warner Bros. Entertainment Thursday, seeking more than $ 50 million for their allegedly unauthorized use of the statue of goat goddess Baphomet in the series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.
In a complaint filed with the United States District Court, the prosecutor, whose mission includes promoting charity and compassion among people who reject the tyrannical authority, accused the accused of infringing copyright, breaching trademarks and violating his reputation.
Netflix has sent a request for a comment to Warner Bros. AT & T. Warner Bros. Paul McGuire, a spokeswoman, said the company was not discussing pending quarrels.
According to the complaint, Netflix, who distributes Sabrina and Warner Bros, who produced it, abused Baphomet with children Salem, a Massachusetts lawyer, in ways that imply "to be evil."
The Satanic Temple, whose formal denomination is the United Churches LLC, said the statue appeared at least four of the first 10 Sabrina episodes, released on October 26, and was the "key element" of the season finale.
"Unique elements of the TST concept of Baphomet's idea, especially the use of the male breasts, rather than the voluptuous large female breasts, and the configuration with the little boy and the little girl looking at the shabby bed of the statue was unmasked by the accused," the lawsuit said.
In his objection, the Satanic Temple also complained that the evil antagonists in Sabrina were shown in a "strong contrast to TST's laws and beliefs."
The lawsuit also requires the exclusion or digital removal of the prosecutor's footage from Sabrina's episodes.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is based on a series of comics with the same name as Archie Comics.
His main character is a semi-witch, a semi-human teenager featuring Kiernan Shipka, who played the lead role of Don Draper's daughter, Sally, in the AMC Mad Men series.
The case is United Federation of Churches LLC v. Netflix et al., US District Court, Southern District of New York, No. 18-10372.
