A federal appeals court ordered the writings of Unabomber Theodore Kaczynski be sold online.

The decision Friday upholds a lower court ruling.

Proceeds from the sale will be given to Kaczynski's victims and their survivors. A judge had ordered Kaczynski to pay $15 million restitution.

Representing himself, Kaczynski had objected to the online sale, arguing he should retain control of the papers.

The appeals court also ruled that bomb-making materials and instructions seized during Kaczynski's arrest and raid at his Montana cabin in 1996 should be destroyed.

Kaczynski is serving a life sentence for killing three people and injuring 23 during a nationwide bombing campaign between 1978 and 1995.
