The executive officer of the NATURIST FREEDOM, s.r.o. company is a holder of certificates for all of these films – expert opinions proving the production of film and photographic materials with active participation of Vlaďka Koch as the director and the author of all the films. All the listed films have as been assessed by a court expert regarding their harmless content from the moral point of view.

Consequences of Violation
- The author’s work violated by the means of unauthorized copying, without the licence agreement regarding its distribution.
The subject stealing the author’s work received unjust income by unearned takeover of the author’s work, as the subject was not required to make any effort and invest time required for the making of the author’s work. The unauthorized distribution brings further damages for the owner of the work, with the competitor occupying part of the market.
In accordance with Law No. 121/2000 Coll. of 7th April 2000 regarding authorship and other related rights, as amended, § 40 – protection of the authorship rights, Article 4: the unjust enrichment arises on the side of the party which unjustly uses the author’s work, without prior consent or obtaining the licence to do so; the amount of damage being twice the costs which would have been under usual circumstances necessary for obtaining the licence, at the time of unauthorized use of the author’s work.
Any person who unjustly interferes with the copyrighted materials... will be punished with imprisonment for the period of up to two years, or with a fine, or forfeiture. (§ 152 of the Criminal Law No. 140/1961 Coll.)
- In case of unauthorized use of photographs, DVD booklets, or films marked with the protected logo in the form of a trademark, the person violating the law may be liable to the following consequences:
In accordance with Law No. 444/2003 Coll. regarding trademarks… in § 8, Article 1 states: “The owner of the registered trademark possesses the exclusive right to use the trademark in connection with products and/or services for which the mark is protected.” Article 2 of the same § 8 also states: “Unless stated otherwise by this Law, no person is allowed in business relations, without prior consent of the trademark owner: b) to use a marking, which, due to its identity or similarity with existing registered trademarks or identity or similarity of the services and/or products might be mistakenly substituted by the general public, including the probability of association between the marking and the trade mark”.
In cases of unauthorized intervention with the copyright and trademark rights, the owner of the trademark is entitled to seek protection from the court, and request for the violation to be terminated, the owner is further entitled to seek adequate compensation, including monetary; the right to extradite the unjustified enrichment and compensation for damages remain intact (Article 4, § 8).
In accordance with Law No. 140/1961 Coll, § 150, Article 1: any person who imports, exports or puts into circulation products or services protected with copyright owned by a different person, or under a mark which may be easily substituted, will be punished with imprisonment for the period of up to two years or with a fine or forfeiture.
- Both means of violation are also characterized with elements of unfair competition:
Unfair competition is punishable with Law No. 513/1991 Coll, being defined in § 44 as acts, contradictory to the good morals of competition, being able to cause damage to other competitors of consumers. The definition includes namely deceptive marking of goods and services, constituting a risk of substitution, parasitism on the good name of the company, products or services of another competitor.
The persons threatened with above-defined unfair behaviour are entitled to seek relief against the violator in the form of a removal of the defective condition, as well as seek adequate compensation, including monetary one. Compensation of losses and extradition of unjust enrichment may be also claimed.
