The Supreme Court recognizes the cassation appeal filed by the Firm in a case concerning the payment of claimed infringement of personal and economic copyrights in connection with publication and use of photographs and drawings without his consent and without identifying him as the author by a Polish publisher. The Court of Appeals in Rzeszów reversed the judgment of the District Court which ruled in favour of the author. Despite the Court of Appeals agreeing with the findings of fact of the District Court it adopted a different legal opinion without stating the legal basis of the judgment. The Supreme Court noticed these breaches and sharing the argumentation of the cassation appeal, revoked the judgment of the Court of Appeal and remitted the case back to the Court of Appeal for reexamination. In the case the courts had to examine not only issues of Polish copyright law, but also the contractual interpretation under German law.
