A group of Satanists who sued Netflix and Warner Bros for $50 million (£38 million) in a copyright row over the Sabrina television show have "amicably" settled the lawsuit.

The Satanic Temple claimed the entertainment giants copied its depiction of goat-headed deity Baphomet in The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina.

An icon similar to the group's appears in four episodes of the supernatural drama, it alleged.

But, after starting legal proceedings, the group revealed on Wednesday they had settled the lawsuit. Details will remain confidential.

In a statement, they said: "The Satanic Temple is pleased to announce that the lawsuit it recently filed against Warner Bros. and Netflix has been amicably settled.

"The unique elements of the Satanic Temple's Baphomet statue have been acknowledged in the credits of episodes which have already been filmed.

"The remaining terms of the settlement are subject to a confidentiality agreement."

The Satanic Temple's founder, Lucien Greaves, added on Twitter: "So ends one of the most overpublicised of copyright claims."

Warner Bros did not release further details of the settlement.

The Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina is a supernatural drama programme starring US actress Kiernan Shipka as a half-mortal half-witch who is torn between her two identities.

It is based of the same comic book series which spawned Sabrina The Teenage Witch, starring Melissa Joan Hart and ran from 1996-2003.

The Satanic Temple says it does not worship Satan but instead works to "encourage benevolence and empathy among all people".
Read this last sentence above again and again. Chew on it for a little bit. They call themselves THE SATANIC TEMPLE. They are Satanist. But here is the kicker, the twist, they tell us with a straight face that "they do not worship Satan". Hmm... It's very much like Islam being the religion of peace. Catch my drift? Black magic or any form of dark forces never "encourage benevolence and empathy among all people." They do not recognize love. They will straight up kill you or harass you to death or curse you for "disturbing their peace, in their twisted bubble". (emphasis mine)
