What ZAiKS is

ZAiKS is a society of authors and the largest collective copyright management organization in Poland.

It brings together composers, authors of texts, screenwriters, playwrights, translators, visual artists, choreographers and creators from other fields of art, as well as music publishers. ZAiKS collects and transfers to authors (and other rightholders, e.g. publishers or heirs) royalties due for the use of their copyrights. It develops, promotes and implements solutions that provide creators and the creative process with legal, financial and organizational support.

ZAiKS is one of the biggest patrons of culture in Poland. It provides authors and cultural institutions with many millions of zlotys for their projects and initiatives using funds from the Creativity Support Fund or by means of other mechanisms of financial support for creative endeavours.
