  1. This is very common in legal science especially if you do your research on legal institutions (like “deposit”, “mortgage”, “pacta sunt servanda in private law” ) properly so it includes what other had said about this topic long before your were even born.

    Many professors are publishing their textbooks/handbooks in a way which I call “plagiat przepisów” or in english “The plagiarism of legal act articles” (not sure if I translated it correctly). What I mean by it is that the Authors don’t say that this sentence is 1:1 copied from the legal act, they just copy-paste it without any informations, they just add some words that those words look like a sentence and not an article from a legal act. No explanations, no words how the Courts see this matter, absolutely nothing.
