    The permissibility of quotations in academic works may be discussed and examined from different perspectives: a copyright perspective (which focuses on the conflict between quotation and infringement of copyright) and an ethical perspective (focusing on the issue of academic reliability). This article contains analysis of the legal status of quotations in the light of Polish Copyright Act of 4th of February 1994, in particular, the prerequisites of the right to use quotations established in Art. 29 of the above act. In a nutshell, it may be concluded that copyright law permits one to quote from other works without the establishment of strict rules and restraints (especially quantitative) in this respect. A flexible approach has been adopted: the permissibility of a quotation is subject to its adequacy for its specific purpose of revealing an explanation, critical or scientific analysis. There are no specific requirements regarding quotations in academic works. These works are specific in that their character and function permit quotes to a greater extent than in other categories of works.
