Pay-per-view in Polish and European law


Polish law do not fully take into consideration the pay-per-view services yet. There is no such term as “pay-per-view” in the Polish law. We should consider “pay-per-view” services as a programme within the meaning of the Broadcasting Law: shall mean a set of moving images with or without sound (audiovisual programme) or a set of sounds (radio programme) constituting, in terms of its content, form, purpose or authorship, an separate item within a programme service developed by the media service provider or a catalogue of programmes made available to the public as part of on-demand audiovisual media service, hereinafter the “catalogue”. This is the result of the implementation of the Directive 2010/13/UE, where the “programme” is defined as: a set of moving images with or without sound constituting an individual item within a schedule or a catalogue established by a media service provider and the form and content of which are comparable to the form and content of television broadcasting. Examples of programmes include feature-length films, sports events, situation comedies, documentaries, children’s programmes and original drama;
