Two months after being sued for $200 million by Warner Bros. Discovery (WBD) over South Park streaming rights, Paramount has fired again with a $52 million countersuit of its personal.

WBD is arguing that Paramount was engaged in an “illicit conspiracy” and used “verbal trickery” to get round a $500 million deal the businesses agreed to in 2019, whereas Paramount says it’s given WBD’s streamer HBO Max every thing that was assured within the deal and its time for Warner to pay up.

Again in February, WBD sued Paramount, alleging that the corporate, South Park Digital Studios (SPDS), and MTV Leisure had colluded to discover a means round a 2019 streaming contract value $500 million. WBD says that the businesses used “verbal trickery designed to avoid the phrases of the 2019 settlement” through the use of “grammatical sleight-of-hand, characterizing new content material as ‘motion pictures,’ ‘movies,’ or ‘occasions’ to side-step SPDS’s contractual obligations” to HBO Max. By reclassifying new South Park content material, WBD argued, Paramount was allowed to maintain it unique by itself Paramount+ streaming platform.
