The United Federation of Churches, LLC has been involved in a number of lawsuits since its formation.
In 2018, the company sued Netflix Inc. and Warner Brothers Entertainment Inc. in the Southern District of New York over use of a breastless Baphomet statue with children in The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, claiming defamation and that its intellectual property rights had been violated, harming its business reputation.
The suit was eventually dismissed with prejudice after Netflix agreed to give a copyright credit on all episodes that had been filmed.
- By misappropriating TST Baphomet with Children (which is a registered copyright and famous mark of TST) to publish this false and defamatory depiction of TST, Defendants have engaged in three classes of wrong: copyright infringement (Claim 1) trademark violation (Claim 2), and injury to business reputation (Claim 3). https://www.courthousenews.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/11/Netflix-Satanic-Temple.pdf

Lederman, told Bloomberg Law Netflix agreed within 10 days of the Temple’s suit to give the it copyright credit for the statute on all episodes that have been filmed. https://www.pacermonitor.com/public/case/26138833/United_Federation_of_Churches_LLC_v_Netflix,_Inc_et_al
