Approval for the reproduction of the banknotes and coins’ designs
The National Bank of Poland (NBP) as the issuer and the owner of property rights related to the money designs reserves itself the right to grant individually its approval for the reproduction of the banknotes and coins’ designs in order to exclude any case of their copying in any form that devalues the Polish money. NBP does not give its assent to: use of the banknotes and coins’ images in order to advertise the substances which may be harmful for health and life if overused reproduce the banknotes and coins’ images in a way that may suggest their destruction e.g. crumpling, perforation, breaking or cutting folding the banknotes into different shapes.
Due to the NBP's necessity to ensure the safety of the banknotes’ circulation, such an approval is secured with the requirement to reproduce only one side of the notes the size of which is larger than 125 % or smaller than 75 % in the length and width than the original note. Moreover, according to the applied regulations of the Act on copyright and the related rights of February 4th, 1994 (Official Journal No. 90, item 631 and later amendments) that provide for the observance of the personal copyright, the author's permission is needed in order to use his work. The elements nor the whole work that is being put into circulation as a legal tender nor its elaboration for other purposes than the ones connected with its official function of a legal tender must not be used without the author's permission.
