Netflix Sued by Satanists!

A group of Satanists called the Satanic Temple filed a lawsuit against Netflix and Warner Bros Entertainment over a particular statue featured in the new series ‘The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’. They are seeking at least $50 Million in damages over copyright infringement.

From Bruce Lederman, the lawyer representing the Satanic Temple:

“This case presents, among other things, a textbook example of the hornbook explanation of copyright protection that copyright law protects unique expressions, but not the ideas themselves. What makes this case particularly striking and significant is that it arises in the context of Defendants who are highly sophisticated media production and distribution companies which blatantly misappropriated Plaintiff’s unique expression of an idea even though they have a long history of vigorously protecting their own intellectual property.”

According to Temple, the show depicted the goat-headed Baphomet, a historical deity the Temple says was created in part to “promote the First Amendment values of separation of church and state and equal protection.”

The Satanic Temple is upset not only because of the usage of the likeness but the context in which it was used:

More from the Satanic Temple:

“These original expressions are misappropriated through use of an obvious copy which is featured prominently throughout the Sabrina series and the central focal point of the school in the Sabrina series which represents evil antagonists. Prominent use of symbol as the central focal point of the school associated with evil, cannibalism and murder blurs and tarnishes the TST Baphomet with children as a mark of TST”

Toruk's Take

Laugh. Out. Loud.

I mentioned before that I didn’t get past the first 15 minutes of this trash show. It started spewing its SJW propaganda and I promptly switched it off. Could it be Karma finally rearing its head to lay waste to these diseased maggots? One can only hope. Never in a million years would I believe that one day I would be rooting for Satanists to win anything. But today’s the day.

God speed, Satanic Temple…and good luck.
