A full summary of this case has been published on Kluwer IP Law
The Polish Supreme Court held that the creative (original) nature of a work protected by copyright may manifest itself in the creative, new and simplified combination of known elements e.g. insurance products. The condition of individuality of such a work will be met if it is unique from the statistical point of view, meaning that it is unlikely that another person will prepare an identical work in the future.
