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. 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 ...

Type: Press
Author(s): Dan Kennedy
Source: Boston Phoenix

Cooley and his relationship to Boston University was the ...
