What is ZPAV?

ZPAV is the only in Poland collecting society for the rights of producers of phonograms and videograms. To operate as such, ZPAV needed to receive a relevant authorization from the Minister of Culture and National Heritage – it was first granted in 1995 and was then renewed in 1998 and 2003 due to the adopted amendments to the Law on Copyright and Related Rights.
