A federal judge ruled yesterday that an Arlington, Va., man violated copyright laws when he dumped sacred texts of the Church of Scientology onto the Internet, saying words enjoy legal protection even in cyberspace.

U.S. District Judge Leonie Brinkema said there was such compelling evidence of copyright violation that she found no need to send the case involving Arnaldo Lerma, 45, to a jury.
