Summary/Abstract: The term “information” is in operative use, to a changing degree, in many legal norms obliging in Poland. At the same time, notwithstanding law branch, both in legal science and judicature, “information” is emphasized as a very complex notion. Recently, with the development of information socjety and technological progress, within doctrine there have started to gradually evolve distinct views which describe the semantic scope of information. However certain lack of consistency in terminological issues concerning information generates serious doubts as to ascribing its legal status. Information, thus far has not been subject to complex considerations of law science. In this respect, judicature either, does not provide plausible material for analysis. In order to establish the range of the term “information” it was first of all necessary to reach for other domains’ achievements (for example to economy) and colloquial language as well. A connection between information and personal data, and databases was shown. Another part of the publication was also dedicated to presenting the term “information” in a functional aspect against the term “information” in an objective aspect.Besides, information regulation in constitutional law, administrative and criminal ones were mentioned. Further part was dedicated to terminological issues concerning information, however viewed through exact civil law regulations. The analyses concerning legal interdependencies between an advertisement, a commercial and economic information were performed. Moreover, the regulation dealing with the press law was presented with information perspective.
