On May 26, 2010, the Kosovo government approved the Regulation establishing the Copyright Office in Kosovo.

The regulation provides that the Office will be within the authority of the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports. The Law on Copyright was enacted in 2006.

The Deputy Minister of Culture Lirie Kajtazi stated that the duties of the Office will include certifying and supervising the associations representing the copyright and related rights holders, as well as other legal subjects specialized in administering copyrights, which meet the criteria set by the law.

Kajtazi added that the Office will soon be functional and staffed, but did not give an exact opening date.
