20 Programme for the Protection of Copyright and Related Rights WARSAW, AUGUST , 2009 OUT – OF – CYCLE REVIEW / EXPERT MEETING

21 Programme (1) Implementation of the Programme is based on the public - social partnership principle, meaning that actions taken up by public authorities should, as much as possible, be consulted and agreed upon with organizations of collective intellectual property rights management and with other social bodies which protect these rights.

22 Programme (2) Without cooperation between public authorities and the right holders, the fight against this type of crime is ineffective. The previous Polish experiences confirm this thesis. Organisations and other social partners share with state authorities their knowledge and experience; they participate in delivery of trainings and social/educational campaigns. Their representatives take active part in the work of the Team.

23 Programme (3) In a six-month cycle members as well as other participants of the Team provide the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage with information about implementation of tasks determined in the Programme.

Proposals of law amendments come as result of the Teams work.
