Popis Arguable fact that law does not discern between two aspects („responsibility“ and „liability“) is criticized in this paper. Inconsistent use of legal terminology in the Czech Civil code does not comply with the announced legally-ideological foundations of the recodified Czech private law. The attempt to solve the purported Czech problem by introducing new concept in polysemous terms is called into question. From the practical viewpoint, there are more important problems of legal responsibility than its „correct“ naming, anyway, e.g. the basic principle of responsibility (subjective, objective, composite – mixed), bearing the burden of proof, forseeability of damage, multiple damages, the extent of damages in context with new technologies etc.
