Talent.pl allows both individuals and corporate bodies to view and search for talented persons to employ them later on, to provide patronage for works make available by authors through the portal, or just to admire the talented persons’ skills.
An artist is a registered user of the portal, who posted (uploaded) on the portal at least one of their audio, video, or audio-video works in categories or professions specified at the portal, who is seeking an employer or a possibility to become known in their field.
A patron is a registered user of the portal, who chose to present or promote themselves by providing support to their favourite authors (artists) through the portal. As soon as the patron makes a payment for any artwork(s), the patron receives an official name of a “Patron of the arts” in the patron’s profile, and participates in the “Patrons of the arts" subpage. The Patron’s minimum payment is (PLN) 100.00 (one hundred) zlotys.
Why is it worth placing your works on Talent.pl?
By placing their work(s) on talent.pl, the artist starts to be promoted in various ways through the portal.

Why is it worth providing patronage for someone else’s artworks?

Why is it worth having an artist’s sub-page on the portal?

Do I lose my copyright in artworks posted on talent.pl?
You do not.
Polish laws are not adequately adapted to clearly indicate what specific wording should be used in web portal regulations to allow Works to be posted with copyrights remaining always with the Author.
As far as copyrights are concerned, Polish judicial decisions show that the acceptance of the regulations alone is insufficient to duly transfer an author’s economic rights; for such transfer to be effected, a relevant separate agreement is necessary.
All this is to emphasize that in no case talent.pl becomes an owner of its users’ works but just acquires a non-exclusive right to present and promote such works.
