Abstract | Full Text

The justification of a court judgment is undoubtedly an official document, although some doubts are raised in the literature on this issue. It is necessary to distinguish the judgments from their justification, which is important in terms of copyright. The justification of the judgment is a work, but not a subject of copyright, as an official document within the meaning of art. 4 sec. 2 of the Copyright and Related Rights Act. The content of the justifications is undoubtedly too extensive, written in hermetic language, which is incomprehensible to not lawyers. Sometimes the opposite is noticeable. Fragments of the work don’t lose legal protection. Justification of the judgments of higher courts is copied to the justifications of lower court judgments. This phenomenon also applies to the copying of excerpts and pleadings from the parties.
