Summary/Abstract: The article focuses on certain competition questions in artistic work, publishing or producing and their reproduction. The aim is to find a dividing line between allowed restricting competition and prohibited restriction of competition what in case of artistic work can be found in the doctrine of ancillary restraints. However, it is necessary to stress that the outcome of artistic effort can enter to market as goods and competition rules shall be fully applied, including price setting issues. Analysis from the view of the two-sided-market theory can introduce new approach to assessment of interchangeability of artistic items.
