The parties agree (see below) that the law applicable to the publishing contract shall be the substantive Polish law (Rome I). The parties confirm that the Arbitration Clause (as described in this section) was agreed, based upon the anti-formalist criterion of many Western legislations including the Polish law and Polish Civil Code article 1162 §2 reads “The requirement concerning the form of the arbitration clause is also met when the clause is included in the letters exchanged between the parties or statements made through electronic communications that allow their contents to be recorded.” and by Article 7 of UNCITRAL Model Law on International Commercial Arbitration 1985 with amendments as adopted in 2006.

The language of the arbitration shall be Polish and the law applicable to the contract shall be the substantive Polish law along with the 1958 N. Y. Convention. The number of arbitrators shall be one. The parties shall limit the possibility of initiating arbitration proceedings before the Pan-europejski Sąd Arbitrażowy to the amount of the claim not exceeding €30.000 in the case of expedited proceedings (one arbitrator). The parties agree to conduct arbitration proceedings solely based on documents. Pan-europejski Sąd Arbitrażowy documents should be directed (forwarded) to the author's address as given as a correspondence address in the author’s registration form and (Villa Europa sp. z o. o.) or their attorneys, respectively. The parties agree that the correspondence could be forwarded to the alternative address as requested via e-mail communication between parties.

The parties also agree that court documents required by the court Arbitration Rules ( and communications relating to the arbitration may be delivered by registered mail through a national postal operator of the author’s home country and/or the Polish Postal services sent by any method of delivery that provides proof of delivery by regional service in author’s country and/or Poland.
