    Summary:
    • The Satanic Temple is suing Netflix and Warner Brothers for $150 million, saying the companies infringed on its copyrights, violated its trademark, and caused injury to its business reputation in its show "The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina."
    • The Satanic Temple says in the lawsuit that it has a copyright on the depiction of Baphomet used in the show.
    Satan is not pleased...

    We know that Jesus is more powerful than Satan, now we will have to see if Netflix and Warner Brothers are also more powerful than Satan.

    Roughly?
    Check viewer ratings vs revenue
    Then shoot high a couple million, so they can counter low (which would roughly be what they wanted)

    Kinda like selling something on craigslist and ebay.
    Know what you want, then list it higher. The counter will usually be around what you intended

    I'd love to be judge to rule against Netflix for damaging the reputation of Satanists.

    I think the premise is that the statue in the show is identical to their statue. The character of Baphomet itself is in the public domain and not subject to copyright protection, just like a Crucifix. But if someone made a particular work of art of a crucifix, say one made out of pancakes or something, then someone else copied it, then you could maybe have a copyright infringement claim.

    The Catholic church does not have a copyright or trademark on any of it's gear.

    Satan probably needs a new yacht, jet, or something else expensive.
