WARSAW, Poland (AP) -- The head of a Polish folk art society is defending the name of its main award, the "People's Oskar," against a legal protest by the U.S. film group that awards the Oscars of Hollywood fame.
Waldemar Majcher of the Association of Folk Artists says the "People's Oskar," honors Oskar Kolberg, a 19th century Polish ethnographer who wrote down some 10,000 Polish folk songs.
In its 10-year history, the "People's Oskar" -- a plaque with an engraved image of Jesus -- has been given to museums, folk festivals and even a bread fair.
Majcher said Monday that he has received a letter from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences protesting the use of the name "Oskar," which is the Polish spelling.
He says his group's lawyers are writing a response to defend its use.
