This book is a result of close cooperation between ICT law institutes of neighbouring countries in the so-called “Vienna Group”. These encompass Austria, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Poland. A symposium held in Prague in 2005 was the starting point to develop the idea of launching a series of studies on the current situation regarding IT law in CEE countries.
“IT Law in Poland” is the first of such “country reports” in English. It provides an overview of and insight into a wide range of topics, from intellectual property law to contracts and liability. The volume covers the following domains of Polish IT law:
Intellectual Property Law: Copyright Law • Trademark Law • Patent Law • Competition Law
Contract Law: International Private Law and Jurisdiction • Software Contracts • Online Contracts
Liability: Liability of Internet Service Providers • Law applicable to Internet Service Providers • Criminal Liability
The book is directed to the Polish legal community as well as to interested readers in other countries all over Europe.
