You seem to be saying that people cannot pursue Dianetics after leaving the Church of Scientology without violating copyright and trademark laws. How so? Some exscientologists may violate such laws, but one can certainly discuss ideas and knowledge which were learned while a member of the Church without violating copyright law.

Does the Church of Scientology require some kind of non-disclosure agreement to be signed by members? That's the only way that I know of to legally prevent disclosure of information.
