Summary/Abstract: The article is a meticulous analysis of the legal status of the anthology as regulated by the Polish Copyright and Related Rights Act from 4th Feb 1994. It consists of two parts: the first one characterizes the anthology as the subject of the Copyright as defined by the art. 3 of the Copyright Act, that is as a collection of works. These reflections pivot around the attempts at situating such works amongst other forms protected by Copyright norms, and defining what rights and obligations follow publishing a compilation. The second section of the paper is focused on the institution of allowed public use as applied to the anthology – in this part discussed are the theoretical and axiological assumptions that lie at the foundations of limiting the authors’ monopoly with respect to protected works, as well as the premises, whose fulfillment is the legal precondition of publishing collections of works and other materials.
