Why is an arbitration court needed?
  • the development of a broadly-understood audiovisual market is contributing to an increasing number of legal disputes
  • the common courts of law do not guarantee a speedy and professional settlement of disputes
  • the audiovisual market deserves to have disputes resolved by individuals who are knowledgeable about the specific nature of the audiovisual business and about individual professions, including on the creative side
  • in some cases, mediation will be sufficient before any court hearing is held
  • consultations with representatives of the various professions in the audiovisual market has confirmed the need for this forum
  • the need to establish an audiovisual business-specific court of arbitration was also supported by the Polish Film Institute (Polski Instytut Sztuki Filmowej)
  • awards made by an audiovisual business-specific court of arbitration can serve as the basis for developing a code of good practice
