New York – A. Netflix has reached an agreement with the satanic temple group after the company was denounced for the plagiarism of a statue appearing in the series The Creeping Adventures of Sabrina released in October this year.

According to the American press Netflix Warner Bros., which issued the series together, reached an agreement with the Satanist group to prevent allegations of copyright infringement, trademark breaches and corporate damages coming to court.

For each of the crimes, the Satanic temple requires $ 50 million, worth $ 150 million. However, the amounts paid by Netflix and Warner Bros. were not disclosed by the companies.

According to Business Insider magazine, the group has managed to turn the "identifiable elements of the Baomed Statue" into the credits of the episodes that have already been filmed.

The Satanic Temple has not provided details of the deal with companies claiming to be subject to a confidentiality clause.

The Satanist group denounced Netflix in a November courtroom in New York, claiming that the series copied the statue of Baphomet, a demon depicted as a male goat with an anthropomorphic form.

Satanists also claim that the statue represents ideals of compassion, empathy, and struggle for justice. In the Netflix series, Baffomet is presented as the "central point of school related to evil, with cannibalism and murder," according to the satanic temple.
