Copyright laws in Bangladesh aim to protect the original works of authorship, which may include literary, dramatic, musical, artistic, and scientific works, regardless of their form, such as written or oral texts, musical compositions with or without text, theatrical plays with or without music, choreographies, and pantomimes, audiovisual works, fine art, including drawings, paintings, sculptures, engravings, and lithographs, architectural works, photographs, applied arts, illustrations, maps, 3D creations of geography, topography, architecture, or science, translations, adaptations, customizations, and other modifications of folklore creations, as well as collections thereof or collections of simple events and facts, such as encyclopedias and anthologies. For a work to be eligible for copyright protection, it must be original, meaning it must be the result of the author's independent intellectual effort, and it must exhibit a minimum degree of creativity.
Copyright protection also extends to databases, provided they are original, as well as software and preparatory material. However, copyright does not protect concepts and ideas. If an idea or concept is expressed in writing or drawings, copyright may be claimed in the particular text or drawing, but it will not protect the idea itself.

In summary, A &A is a legal practice in Bangladesh that specializes in providing comprehensive services related to copyright and related rights. The practice covers all aspects of copyright, including copyright litigation, and provides expert guidance on copyright ownership, registration, and enforcement, as well as negotiating and drafting contracts related to copyright.
