Bangladesh Copyright Office national level quasi-judicial organisation responsible for copyright management in Bangladesh and is located in Dhaka, Bangladesh.[1][2]


After the independence of Bangladesh in 1971 the regional copyright office was made the national copyright office. It is a department under the ministry of culture.[1] It has been criticized for failing to coordinate with the Department of Patents, Designs and Trademarks, both of which are responsible for the protection of intellectual property in Bangladesh.[3] Copyright applications are available on its website.[4]
