SAN JOSE, CALIF. SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) _ The Church of Scientology has settled a copyright dispute with an Internet provider that many in the computer industry worried would restrict freedom of expression in cyberspace.

The church and Netcom On-Line Communication Services, one of the nation's largest Internet access providers, agreed not to discuss details of the out-of-court settlement reached Friday in San Jose.

They did say, however, that the online service has posted a warning to its subscribers telling them not to use Netcom to "unlawfully distribute the intellectual property of others."
