ALEXANDRIA (AP) _ A critic of the church of Scientology violated copyright law when he posted sacred church texts on the Internet, a federal judge ruled Friday.

In a case closely watched by computer users, the church sued Arnaldo Lerma for placing the documents on the Internet as part of his long-running criticism of church practices he says are abusive.

U.S. District Judge Leonie M. Brinkema put aside questions of whether the church harassed the critic or abused a search warrant she granted and narrowed the complex case to a few issues of copyright law.
