Safeguarding the proper use of the composer's name and image is the responsibility of Poland's minister of culture and the protection of national heritage who, in turn, entrusted it to the Warsaw-based National Institute of Frederic Chopin. A quick search of Chopin and business returns examples of luxurious hotels, spas and manors. Since last year, one of the products bearing his name is also a brand of coffee.
