The subject of this article is to analyse the problem of admissibility of renun-ciation of copyrights in Polish legislation . The problem of broadly understood transferability of copyrights is widely discussed both in court rulings and in the literature of the subject . The present paper therefore answers the question – what if the author does not want any copyrights to be vested in him . The eventual pos-sibility of waiving copyrights will vary depending on the nature of the rights we are dealing with . In the case of personal copyrights, this problem is regulated by Article 16 of the Act on Copyright and Related Rights . As far as economic copy-rights are concerned, it should be pointed out that in the current legal situation there is no explicit regulation on the renunciation of copyrights, therefore it was necessary to interpret copyright law in this area . However, the discussed prob-lem was recognised by foreign legislators and regulated in national regulations, e .g . in the United Kingdom, the United States or Canada . The solutions adopted in the indicated countries were described, presenting interesting concepts for solving the analysed problem.
