Abstract: Books play essential role in shaping the personality of an individual, exemplification and broadening horizons. They are sources both of knowledge and information, and immeasurable elements of the tangible and intangible cultural heritage. This study presents selected legal regulations and activities undertaken in order to protect the documentary heritage of humanity. The legal protection of intellectual property takes on a new importance in the era of the Internet and in the light of forming the information society. Social, economic, technological, and information transformations arouse questions on the identity of a contemporary human being. Books are witnesses to history and media as well as forms for preserving memory which is a condition sine qua non for the present and future functioning.
Key Words: Book; Library; Monument; Cultural Heritage; Human Rights; Social Memory; Digitisation; Law; Poland.
