Summary/Abstract: In the article the author analyses the legal character of permission for dissemination of images of minors with limited legal capacity and those that are characterized by complete legal incapacity based on the following acts: The Act on Copyright and Related Rights, Civil Code and the Family and Guardianship Code. Based on the Civil Code regulations, the author classifies the permission to one-sided and authorizing legal acts and indicates differences related to the permission for dissemination of an image resulting from the different age of minors. Minors under 13 years of age may not grant permission to disseminate their image by themselves and the permission granted should be classified as significant, which should be decided on by both parents. Minors with limited legal capacity may allow the dissemination of image by themselves, although they should get their parents’ unbinding opinion.
