Information about the public comment period

In Poland since 2011 there is an ongoing debate concerning the compliance of CC0 mechanizm with Polish law. Positions in this topic were issued by: the Ministry of Culture, Coalition for Open Education, Centrum Cyfrowe (institutional partners of Creative Commons Poland) and Poznan Supercomputing and Networking Center.

Public comment period will start in the beginning of 2015. The translation will be published along with a note explaining the concerns about its compatibility with polish law based on statements analysis of entities listed above.

At the same time the translation will be sent directly to the people involved in the earlier translations of Creative Commons license and active in the field of copyright law and openness, lawyers, active librarians, representatives of cultural heritage institutions. To reach out those people we will use communication channels of Creative Commons Poland, Centrum Cyfrowe, Coalition for Open Education, and our partners such as Modern Poland Foundation, Malopolska Institute of Culture.

We will use blogs, social medias and mailing list to inform about translation process.

Word choice
original - Copyright and Related Rights translation - prawa autorskie i powiązane notes - Related Rights is a term in polish copyright law, which covers Rights to Performances, rights to Phonograms and Videograms, Rights to Broadcast Program Services, Rights to First Publications and Scientific and Critical Publications. CC0 Legal Code defined Related Rights much broader than that, including for example rights protecting against unfair competition or sui generis database rights. For this reason, Related Rights are translated literally (as copyright and similar rights), not as a legal term.

orginal - the public translation - ogół użytkowników notes - the public can be translated in several ways. Firstly as “licensee”, but it applies also to those who are only potential licensees. An alternate translation may be "public," a term which appears in polish civil code, but is not clear to the average person. Provided translation uses term “general users”, which is the most understandable.

original - as is translation - w stanie, w jakim on się aktualnie znajduje i, w najszerszym zakresie dopuszczalnym przez wszelkie stosowne przepisy

notes - This legal term does not occure in polish law. For this reason has been given descriptive definition of the legal term.

Yes I confirm that the team understands that this will be a translation of CC0 and not an adaptation.
